Log in to your router, go to applications and games, then enter a name--> then input the ports you wish to open--> then input the IP address of the computer or what ever device your opening the ports for. Make sure you have a check mark next to enable. Then save settings.

can't find manual for it but it says it's a 16 port. If all 16 ports are labeled identically, just use a standard ethernet cable (i.e. patch cable) from the switch to your router. If there's one port that is a different color or labeled uplink or labeled 'wan' plug that into your router. Then plug all your other devices into the other ports.
I'm assuming you have a router. If not get one. You should not be connected to the internet without a router.
If your modem is not also a router you can only connect one device to it. You should have a router instead of a switch. Otherwise check the settings on your modem to be sure the ports are open that are needed for the Sling Catcher.
Hi, by default the Linksys router is set to DHCP... So all you have to do is connect an ethernet cable from your modem to the WAN/Internet port of the router and then connect a PC to one of the ports, see if that will be able to connect to the Internet if not, try to do a power cycle (turned off everything and then turn on the modem first and wait for all the lights to be stable and turn on the router and then the PC) once the computer gets online you may connect the rest... should you require to connect more than 4 PCs, you may need to have a switch but with this setup the physical connection should be
Modem to WAN port of the Router to Switch port and all PC should be connected to the Switch's ports
connect the router to the switch using any port-it does not matter which port you use. Connect each computer to any port on the switch-it matters not. The router will assign IP address to the computer as they are added.
You need two network adopters in your system. Connect Internet connection in first Network card and from the other network card give it to your Switch or hub If you are using XP system you can use Internet connection sharing to share the internet in your LAN systems. Follow the steps to enable using ICS
1.Enable Internet Connection sharing in the LAN properties in the first network card. 2.Now your second network card automatically get an IP address in the range of 192.168.*.* series 3.Connect other systems in the LAN and make sure the system has selected Optain IP atomatically from DHCP.
You are all set.
There is also an advanced way to setup this . Install IPCOP firewall in a system with two network cards and u can share the internet with the firewall settings
The thing is that this is not a router as I know. It has to be a switch. As I know. You still need a router to connect to the internet and do the routing. First check that. To configure the network, you have to connect 3 PCs to your switch. Connect the switch to a router. Use router's uplink or auto sense ports. Connect both the ports with a straight through cable. If you don't have such port in the new router (when you buy, check it first), use a standard ethernet port. But you have to use a cross-over cable. Then go to router's login page and log in. Set the dhcp. It will assign adresses to your switch and PCs also. Make sure you don't have static configurations in you machines which may confuse by duplication. To use dhcp, set you machines' IP settings to obtain IP and DNS automatically. Set the default gateway IP as the router's IP. Then open a command prompt and ping the router. Then ping the switch(first do that). Then ping other PCs. After verifying the connectivity, plug the cable(internet) and your router has to have such a port. Go to WAN settings and do any other configuration. Cable internet (if its adsl instead of TV cables), you will required to provide authentication information with other settings. For cable internet instead of ADSL, the configurations might be different and I don't have experties on that (cable TV used as a medium to access the internet). So hopefully this will do your task. If this solution is able to solve ur problem, please rate it. Thanks and Good Luck. :)
