Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I would try a different port with a new cable. IP conflict should be noted by the PC / node. You could ping the IP in question with the -a switch to resolve DNS name. You could also run a traceroute from the command prompt to help identify what drop if failing / timing out.

1.For a hub you don't need any driver.Just simply plug anything onto it.
2.I think the error message being throw by you computer was
"conflicting IP" not "conflicting ISP" .So if incase of "conflicting IP" that mean you have more than 1 computer using same IP number.So the solution is to change the IP number so that they don't get conflict.
3.make sure you use the same group of IP.like if your first computer is 192.168.0.1 then your second should be 192.168.0.2 and so on...3,.4.,5.....

SOURCE: Network Conflict issues
So your basically connected straight to the internet,
This is your connection problem already, too many systems...
use the router as a gateway only, not for D.H.C.P.
all systems should be behind a router, especially the servers, these should be well away from the net, at least behind a firewalled router,
Promote the server to Domain Controller
install D.H.C.P. on it
If you have file servers thats ok, just connect them to the network.
( you will have to go round all PCs to change to AUTO D.H.C.P )
This is a saturday job for you when no one is working.
let the server handle D.H.C.P.
thats what it is for, exactly for your problem you have,
of a Growing LAN, yes 10-15 PCs is ok
but now 35, possible going upto 40-50, needs Automating.
Hope this helps

You have to interconnect the switches with the cable. Connect the computers to the switches. Also connect the internet cable in the switch too.

You say you have the same problem when you connect the cable directly from router to laptop, so it apparently is not a hub problem. That leaves the router and the cable. You're fortunate in having a working system on the other port. Why not try swapping pieces to see which is the failed piece? For example, what if you swap the ports for the cables? If it's a router problem, then the "bad" cable should work when in the other port. What if you swap cables? That would reveal a bad cable. Finally, swapping computers would show a computer configuration problem, such as the connection not being set to automatic.

Ok, the next time when the disconnection occurs. Try the following:
Open command prompt. And try pinging www.google.com, if the ping is successful and you are still unable to access the internet, then you may want to check the proxy settings on your web broswer, or possibly repair/reinstall the browser. You can also try accessing the internet on a different browser.
If you are unable to ping google successfully, then try to ping the IP address of your wifi modem, this is your default gateway. If you are unable to ping this address successfully, then check the cable from the DES-1008D switch to the wifi modem. As a local area connection 'connected' just shows that the link from your PC to switch is fine.
Please try these steps and let me know the results.
