Absolutely. The router will have an uplink port. It will indicate on the back. Hook the modem from sat to the uplink and the other 2 computers to the other ports. make sure the computers are on DHCP (they should be defaulted to it) and they should auto connect

I have 10 computers and 2 printers networked in the office. I'd like to hae them all wired. I bought a 10/100 switch but not sure how to hook it up with my router. Any advice?


Most low to mid range switches require no configuration. Switch-to-router connections use a standard straight-through CAT-5 network cable, same as for your PC. Connect any switch port to any LAN port on the router (you didn't say if your router has more than one) and then connect your PCs and printers to the other switch ports with CAT-5 network cables. The WAN port on the router remains connected to the upstream (Internet) provider.

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.

Can I use more than one modem on my phone line to support multiple computers? Also, where can I obtain a list of modems compatible with a Netopia 2249n? Thanks


Hello

The short answer is no you really cant use multiple modems. The internet should come in to your home via the modem, then go in to a ROUTER. Many times the router will have 3 to 5 ports on the back to hook your other computers too. This means running cables. Another way is to use WIRELESS cards that you can find on the net or from best buy.

If your router does not have any extra ports you need to buy something called and ethernet switch. Again they come in 4 and 8 port models up to LOTS AND LOTS Of ports for big companies. You hook the switch in to the router, then hook the computers in to the switch.

I hope this helps you

Hello Friend
You could definately use Network Switch-10/100 5-port model#EZXs55w to Connect to Network Router or Modem using Uplink Port at back Panel of 10/100 5-port model#EZXs55w Switch.
Simply Connect Modem cable to Uplink Port of Switch and connect computers to other 2 ports of switch. Allow computers to get Automatic ip addresses..if computers still not getting ip addresses auto--contact cable company and config your cable modem to use NAT or enable NAT--

Linksys 5-port switch


When connecting a switch/router to another switch a specially-wired crossover ethernet cable is necessary, unless both units are designed to automatically determine whether they need to operate in crossover or "uplink" mode. This is more than likely the problem you are encountering.

I have a cable modem. from the cable modem I go to a 5 port hub


That is because most cabel internet providers only gives you one public IP. Please go to a Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, or Targer, and ask for a LinkSys Router. The router will do NAT (Network Address Translation) that will allow more than one PC share the single public IP. This will solve your problem and will cost an estimated $30.00. The router is simple to hook up, just plug the cabel from your modem into the Internet/WAN port on the router. And the two computers into any of the other ports. Be sure to unplug both cable modem and router then plug up the cable modem first, once the ready light is on, plug up the router.
