Question about NetGear ProSafe GSM7248 48-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch
The problem in the netgear GSM7248 are
1. The system host would not intialize or connect via putty
2. communication failed when ports 25,26,27, and 28 were used.
SOURCE: Trying to connect two PC's
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.

Is your ReplayTV and Xbox configured to use DHCP? If not, you may need to configure static IP addresses for each of them.

You can obtain IP details for Preferred DNS server & Alternate DNS server from your internet service provider.
don't use automatic ip addresses.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:
1. Check physical connections.
a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.
2. Access the router's web-based utility.
a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".
Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.
To reset the router:
a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.
3. Configure the router.
If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:
a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.
If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:
a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.
4. Power cycle.
a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.
If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:
From the above configuration, please check if you can now access the Internet.

Wel the issue is clear. Your printer supports maximum connectivity at 100mbps and hence it is getting that much bandwith from the switch.
