Question about Computers & Internet
I have 2 computers-I hook either one to router and they work-I hook both to the switch and one works but the other one won't-both computers run windows XP home.
Is this the DSL router that comes from the ISP or is this one that you purchased for this purpose?
The problem would seem to be that you are probably only getting one IP address. If this router is from the ISP then you are probably only getting one IP address. If this the case you will need to either request another router that has the ability to act as a DHCP server. If this is not an option, then my solution would be to get another router/switch that will provide IP addressing. This would solve your problem.
However, with not knowing whether you are getting ip addresses on both computers this is just my best guess based on the information provided.
Hope this helps.
