    I am trying to set up internet connection for a second pc using a Dynex Switch and my cable modem. The Dynex manual is extremely limited and tech support could not speak English. I have connected my cable modem to the Dynex switch box and have ethernet cables running from the switch ports to my pcs, however my 2nd pc is not able to get online; Reason showing is that it has not been assigned a network address. Please help. Thanks

The problem is probaby that you have one computer direct to the
internet modem, and the other to a wireless network. If the IP address in not assigned to the computer hooked directly to the cable modem, but to the wireless computer, it will drop off when the other computer is attempted to connect with the internet. Cure it by turning all computers off. Turn on the computer directly hooked to the modem first, get booted and connected to the internet. They turn on the wireless computer. Fixed mine after tearing my hair out for a week!!

I want to set up a server and 10 computer LAN without an internet connetin involved


just hook it up, you have no router involved so it will have no internet connection.
Just connect all the PC's to the switch using straight through patch leads and assign the IP address manually as DHCP will not run on the switch.
you don't need a default gateway address as there will be no routing. Just set the IP addresses to;
192.168.0.1
192.168.0.2
192.168.0.3
and so on for each host on the LAN.
Use the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 this will give you the address range 192.168.0.1-254

hope this helps.

I have 2 computers (Vista and XP). I am using Linksys 10/100 hub. The problem is I can not use the internet both computers at the same time. I can only use one computer at time. Please help me. Thank...


Then both computers are trying to use the same IP address.
Have you tryed to plug both computers in and rebooting the modem and the router, this should force it to assign new IP addresses and both should work.

LAN Network, both PC's with static IP's and defaullt and DNS addresses are 192.1683.1.1 tried the other defaults. Both machines connected. when i ping each others IP's request timed out. please help


Hi,
Can not really understand what exactly you have done. Please try the following steps:
1. Assign static IP on pc 1 as 192.168.1.2 assign subnet mask as 255.255.255.0. 2. No need to assign default gateway and DNS. 3. Assign static IP on pc 2 as 192.168.1.3 assign subnet mask as 255.255.255.0. 4. No need to assign default gateway and DNS.
Open dos and try to ping. In case if the ping fails then disable all the firewall on both the pc's and try again.
If you are running windows vista then in network and sharing center make sure network discovery and file sharing is enabled.
Regards,
Rashish

HI, I have D-link DES 3026 manageable switch. i want to configure this switch.........In that we have to assign our IP....... I dont know how to assign the IP........ I have WAN IP, Subnet Mask, Gateway...


Normally most internal LAN addressing is carried out by a DHCP server which issues IP addresses to anything that is connected to the network.
IE your computer. most switches are set to obtain an IP address from them as a default. to find the IP address of youe switch you need to look at your DHCP server ( possibly your router/modem) and see what addresses have been issued. Once you have found the address it is a simple task to open your internet browser and type in the ip address of your switch. once there you should be able to configure your switch as per your requirements.

Conflict message


if u have 2 PCs connected to the hub/router then you must specify the IP address in Network Connection wizard..../ LAN properties / TCP-IP setting Tab......set each PC different....IP address
say like this.....
192.168.1.3 for 1st PC
192.168.1.5 for 2nd PC

the rest of the settings is based on you internet service provider
this will work....

How to configure d-link switch


Hi there, there is no real configuration settings for switchs as they are generally considered "Unmanaged Devices" and have no managment interface, if your using this device to connect 2 or more computers, then you need to assign ip's on each computer statically..
the general procedure for this is as follows. in Windows XP, right click on My Network (might be called network neighborhood) , click propertys, it should pop up a window with a list of items, one of them should be "TCP/IP", click on that and click Properties, in the new window, click "Use The following ip address".
on Computer A, you want to use the following settings.
IP Address: 192.168.1.5 subnet mask : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (or the ip address of your router)
Click "Use the following DNS Server addresses"
Preferred DNS Server: 4.2.2.1 Alternate DNS Server : 4.2.2.2
click ok, and do the same procedure on the 2nd and 3rd computers, in the ip address box on computer 2 and 3, add 1 to the final number, so computer B would have an ip of 192.168.1.6 Computer 3 would have 192.168.1.7 , and so on.

One computer connected the other limited or no connectivity


When using a router your IP is assigned to your Router. Then Your router assigns IP's to whatever is hooked up to it. Set everthing to detect automaticly. Might delet connection and create a new one.

Try to assign an IP address to the second computer like 192.168.0.101 Subnet 255.255.255.0 and Default gateway 192.168.0.1

Note: This one is an example of IP address, the IP address that you need to assign is in range to the router that you have or with in range to the modem.

Dynex dx-ehb4 will not change ip addresses


I am not familiar with that router so I will provide general knowledge and you can apply it to fix your problem.
It sounds like your cable modem is willing to supply a single IP address. This can and should be connected to the WAN port of your router. The problem is that the router is not assigning IP addresses to the equipment that is connected to its LAN ports. Instead, it allows that single cable modem IP to be assigned to connection #1 and everybody else gets nothing. Get the computer working through it, connect to the router as per the owners manual and turn on NAT or DHCP, whichever it offers. Reboot the computer and connect xbox and you should be good. This was probably not an issue with DSL because your DSL modem would supply up to about 10 IP addresses and they also passed through the router.

Trying to connect two PC's to a Netgear FE108 switcher and a Thompson cable modem. Modem is connected to "Uplink" port on switcher. Normal/Uplink switch on switcher is set to "Uplink" Can connect one PC if...


Any network device, PC or otherwise, needs an IP address assigned. So, yes, both your PC's need an IP address.
Assuming your ISP lets you have multiple PC's(IP's) then you'll have to use the IP space provided by your ISP. The default gateway would also be provided by your ISP.


The way you SHOULD do this is to use a router, linksys for example. This way you can setup you private network(I.E. 192.168.10.10 for example). This will hide and protect YOUR private space from would be hackers. The router would use the REAL IP address on the outbound side to talk to the cable/DSL modem.

btw...you can use the ipconfig command at the command prompt(I.E. a DOS window) on your working machine to see the DHCP address and gateway that was assigned. Sound like your ISP only allows you one IP. The router solution above will fix that and let you connect as many as you want because the ISP will only see the one IP from the router.
