One method is to place a hub (not switch) between the LAN cable of your router and the LAN connection to the switch. Or if you have a monitoring port configured on your switch, then you can use that.

Internet => Router => HUB (not switch) =>regular switch (and connect Snort to the hub where it will get all traffic passed behind the firewall)
Internet => Router => Switch with monitoring port configured (and connect Snort to the monitoring port)
