Do you have a router in front of the switch? Most ISPs only give you one or two "public" addresses. If you don't have a router in front of the switch, your computers and devices will not receive the "private" addresses they need to communicate with each other and the internet.

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.

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.

My linksys network switch is not connecting network computer, what can i do to get it back to work?


Do you have any activity lights on the Linksys? If not your switch has no power a hardware problem. Try to power off for 5 seconds and restore power on the Linksys unit. Try to shut down (do not restart) all computers. Are all the activity lights off? If not again power off the Linksys for five seconds and restore power. Power on the computers and verify the activity lights are now green for each computer. If the computers are not networked and the activity lights are green, check your network settings on your computers, which could have incorrect TCP/IP settings or workgroup. If one activity light is not green for that Ethernet connection, check your cable connection or replace the Ethernet cable. The workgroup should all be the same name. The TCP/IP address should be the same with the exception of the last set of host digits which should be unique to each computer address.

Linksys EZXS16W Issue


Hi There, first of all you need to connect from your modem or router's port a link. Use a cat5 ethernet cable from the modem to the switch or if you also use a router from a port in back to the switch. Then when you plug in other computers it will see the internet connection. Good Luck...

Home Network sharing issues using 2wire wireless modem


Did you manually assign the IP address to your shared devices? If so, the Linksys and the 2wire have different IP schemes.

2wire Gateway IP address:
192.168.1.254
255.255.255.0

Do an ipconfig /all on your computer and compare it to the ip scheme on your devices.

Setting up my HOME network! HELP!!!


Sounds like something is not right with the sharing... Assuming that computer 1 (the computer with the printer) is sharing and everything is set correctly, I would change the workgroup name. Instead of using "MSHOME" use say some basic word like "example" or some other name.

Ironically for my workgroup here I call it "StarWars"

needless to say my printers and everything shares just perfect. When you use "MShome" there's restrictions on what XP professional and XP home machines see on the network. I changed the workgroup name and that solved that problem.

Be sure to put all computers on the same workgroup name that you pick. You can even choose your first name if you want.
