Cannot use more than 1 computer with my 5 port router

I hooked up my Dynex 5 port router, DX-ESW5, to my laptop and another computer but it only allows 1 to access the internet. It is not a wireless router and when both computers are connected the router status shows green for both. Could you help me out? Thanks!

Start with buying a router. The Dx-ESW5 is a 5-port switch, not a router. http://dynexproducts.com/t-faqs_dx_esw5.aspx

You could make it work, but you'd have to assign IP addresses to each of the machines connected to the Internet. For security and a number of other reasons, it's quicker and easier to just grab a router on sale at your local office supply place for $30 bucks or so.

How to connect a dynex (dx-e402)router to linksys (befsr41) router


Configure the dynex on another computer that is not connected to the linksys router.
Assuming that your linksys is currently setup as 192.168.1.1
Turn off DHCP on the dynex and setup the IP to 192.168.1.2 subnet mask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
use a cross over cable and plug each ends to the LAN port on port routers.
you should now be able to ping 192.168.1.2 (dynex router) from your other computers on the linksys router network.
any computer that is connected to the dynex should be able to get a dhcp address from the linksys router.

Cant hook this up, will this work two computers


You will need to use two standard ethernet cables. Each computer will connect to each of the LAN ports on the rear of the router. If you would like to connect the two computers to the internet, you will need to connect another ethernet cable, one end to your modem (assuming you already have one) and the other end to your router's WAN port. There are additional settings you need to configure on your router if your ISP requires a login.

Can't find the instructions to hook up second computer, we have two computers and the reason for the dx was to hook both of them up now I find I have no instructions, pls help!


Assuming that the router has one 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port, and more than one 'LAN' (or 'Network') port, just connect an Ethernet cable from the 2nd LAN port to the network-port on the second computer.

Both the router and the second computer should auto-configure themselves, giving you an Internet connection, without any fuss.

Can  Dynex 4 Port Router DX-E402 be used to connect internet on a notebook without using cable to notebook?? i.e. Can it be used like a wireless g router??


Unfortunately, the DX-E402 is not a wireless router, so it can not transmit its signal without a physical cable connecting the router to your computer. If you want a wireless router that can also connect to your ISP, check out the Dynex Enhanced Wireless G Router:
