Question about NetGear ProSafe GS108 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS108NAKIT)

1 Answer

Switching from Linksys 5 port switch to Netgear 8 Port Gigabit

We have 4 computers on our small buisiness network and one internet connection. System worked with Linksys 5 port switch. Swapped switches and cables and booted all computers. 2 computers work fine...autodetected everything. Other 2 computers do not work at all. Was able to connect to local area by manually inputing IP addresses, but could not get connection to the internet for either computer at all. 3 computer (2 work 1 not) are the exact same. Same drivers, same networking card (Intel Pro/1000 MT) all running xp. Other computer is vista laptop attempting to connect via cat 5 (this is the other that does not work).
Please help if you can...i'd appreciate it. Small buisiness and cant afford expensive tech assists, but we need to add another computer to keep up with workload.

When you use the older Netgear RO318 Router, make sure you don't use the WAN/Internet port, only use the numbered switch ports of the router.

Hi I would like o hook up a netgear prosafe 8port gigabit switch to my pc and run an ethernet cable which is allready hardwired to my sony bluray player so I can enjoy netflix


It would be much easier to use a simpler device, namely any Netgear 10/100 wireless router.

Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) --> Router's WAN port

Router's LAN port #1 --> your desktop computer
Router's LAN port #2 --> your Sony player
Router's wireless adapter --> your iPod Touch's WiFi adapter

Since the cable-modem (or DSL-modem) is only delivering 5 to 25 Mbits/second to your router,
unless you are paying a _lot_ of money per month to your ISP,
there's no need to buy/use expensive "gigabit" equipment.

Here are a few things to try:

How do i connect two computers so they both have the same ip address i have a linksys 5-port workgroup switch will that work ? also i had hooked it up but only one of my computers had internet


They cannot have the same IP address due to the mechanics of DHCP. Buying a cheap 50$ router (not switch) will fix your problem as your internet service provider will see that device as a single unit that it will assign an IP and then the router will give out internal ip addresses so that they can get online. The switch does not have this functionality.

Try a brand-new cable between the modem and the "uplink" port on the router.
Try a brand-new cable from one of the "LAN" ports to your computer, and test to see that you get a good connection.

I have a Linksys 5-port switch connected to a cox cable modem and I'm trying to use it to connect two computers at the same time. Only one works at a time and I have to reset the switch and modem to get...


Because the cox cable modem will only bind to one mac address (computer). You need to purchase a router, any router linksys, dlink, will do, get a wireless one so you can setup wifi as well. Plug your cox cable modem into the wan port on the router, plug your pc into one of the ethernet switch ports, you can use your web browser IE to login to the router and secure your wifi signal, power cycle your modem to make it bind to the new router. Most linksys dlink are programmed for a class c network, you could in theory put 254 devices, computers on your connection now.
