You need to make sure that DHCP is enabled in the router settings and that your network cards TCP/IP is set to obtain an ip address automatically.

Also check that your computers workgroup is the same as your friends eg, Home or Workgroup.

1 connected ethernet cable from modem to dynex hub in "uplink port", ran another ethernet cable from laptop to 2nd port on dynex hub and ethernet cable from ps3 to 3rd port and nothing happens. Please help...


If your trying to use this to share an internet connection.. sorry to say but it's not going to happen. The hub that you purchased will not handle the DHCP settings that need to be processed to share an internet connection.

Best advice... go back to Best Buy and smack the agent that sold you this and get a router instead. :D That's what you're needing to share your connection.

Setting up a small network using DSL and a DLink router


1.) The setup needs changing
2.) first off the dss-24 is a network switch not a router
3.) all of your pc equipment should be pluged into that device.
4.) chose one port as an uplink to your att modem
I think your problem is that the new modem is only giving out one ip address. So what ever first pc is turned on that is the one that grabs the address.
5.) you will most likly need a router to take the one ip address assigned via att then dole out additional ones. Remember the dss-24 is not a router. It simply connects everyone together. Each device still needs an ip address given from somewhere. Your old cable modem probibly did that but your new att dsl most likly does not.hence the new router will do that.....
to set it up do the following
2.) Find out the ip setup needed for your dsl service
A.) gateway ip
B.) primary & secondary dns server ip`s
C.) subnet mask
3.) get into the setup of your new router and then plugg in
all of these values using a fixed if address in the router
4.) connect routers wan port to one of the modems port. u may have to use a cross cable or straight look at the link lites to find out if they are talking to each other
5.) make sure that the routers lan side is setup for DHCP
6.) connect one lan port off the router to an uplink
of the dss-24. Then reboot everything
7.) viola it should all work internet on evey machine and file sharring.

I am trying to setup up a D-Link DES-1016D, 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch to allow 5 laptops to connect, 1 cat 5 is connected to another switch that will provide these 5 laptops internet how can i do this? I...


The Simplest Way of doing this is this:

You will need just 1 switch and 5 Straight-Through cables.

(This is Provided that your laptop will connect to the internet through another method. e.g (Though a USB Modem or WIFI) ).

Connect the Main laptop to the internet through either a USB Modem or a WIFI.

Next, Connect a straight-through cable to the LAN Port of the laptop, and the other end to one of the ports of the switch.

On the network connections page, right-click on the ethernet adapter, go to TCP/IP, and give the laptop a static IP-Address, e.g 192.168.0.1 and Subnet 255.255.255.0

For the other laptops, connect each one of them to the switch using the straight-through cables, and on their ethernet adapter TCP/IP Properties, give them different IP Adresses, but in the same subnet. e.g

192.168.0.2 and 255.255.255.0 for the 1st one
192.168.0.3 and 255.255.255.0 for the 2nd one
192.168.0.4 and 255.255.255.0 for the 3rd one, ....and so on.

Next, in the default gateway for these other laptops, put the IP-Address of the First laptop that is connected to the internet. i.e 192.168.0.1.

Also repeat the same IP Address of the 1st laptop in the Preferred DNS Server for these other ones.

Next, setup home or office network on all of them,

follow on-screen instructions and when you get to the place where you have to select the type of network setup, Just select :

"This computer connects directly to the internet........" for the 1st laptop,

For the others, select : " This Computer Connect through a residential gateway or other computer on my network.".

Then give them all the same workgroup name, and accept file and printer sharing for all of them.

In case you are using Windows Vista.
The only different things include:
When you get to the TCP/IP Place, select TCP/IPv4 and Not TCP/IPv6.

Also, When you are changing the workgroup, all you need to do is to right-click on My Computer Icon, then Properties then go to Advanced, then Select Computer Name, and change the workgroup from there and restart the computer.

What I have told you is a typical, very easy network setup, and I do hope it helps you out.

Keep me posted about the problem.

Hope it helps you out.
Good luck

Same thing as above, want to se up a LAN connection


Once you connect the 2nd switch - you must power down the cable modem and the original router along with all PC's connected to the network.
Then power up the cable modem,wait 2 minutes,
power up the router - wait 2 minutes, then power up all the switches. Once all downstream devices are on - power up all the PC's and you should be OK.

Dear! first of all you need a 4 port hub or 8 port switch that have easily available. Now, first of all, put three wires (Straight Through Cable) in three different ports and other side its ends put in that nodes or computers. Now they are connected to each other. You want to sharing data for each you should run setup wizard for sharing inside the network places after that computer required a restart.

You should use IP address for computers, first of all IP 192.168.0.1 for first PC and 192.168.0.5 for second PC and 192.168.0.10 IP for 3rd PC. Enjoy, everything is accessible now ...........

You can connect the computers with a serial cable, or using hyper terminal. If you have a home network, most windows operating systems will aid you to setup a home network so that you can share information

I have a d link DES-1105. cant get more than one computer to work on hub/switch.


Hi!
Unfortunately, hubs or switches cannot be use to share internet access specially if it's connected to a modem. To share internet access, you will need a router. If you prefer not to use a router, you can enable ICS (Internet Connection sharing) on one PC and share internet access to the others. However, the PC that will share internet access will need two ethernet cards (or LAN cards).

Your setup will look like this:

If internet is not a concern, and you just want to connect the computers to share files and resources, you will have to se your computers to static IP. You do not need any additional device - just connect your computers to the hub, setup a static IP on all the computers.

If you need further assistance setting up static IP on the computers, please reply and I'll give you the step by step instruction for that.

For any setup, a router will be the best option.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!
