Set up both pc's with dhcp. To do this, right click (My Network Places) in the start menu and choose properties. Right click your network connection and again choose properties. Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then select properties. Choose (Obtain an IP Address Automatically). Then (OK) and again (OK). Do this on both pc's.

We have two computers and we can t connect at the same time

You must make sure your ISP- Internet Service Provider allows more then one conection.
Shut everything off for 2 minutes the start everything up 1 at a time giving time for full boot up of each in between each devicethis can often fix the problem but often you will need a router rather than a switch as a switch does not assign IP addresses so it will look as though both PC's have the same IP address and booting one or the other ofline.

If this is helpful please give it a Thumbs Up!!!
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.

D-link cant accesed internet 4pc

Most of DSL modems are connected to PC with USB cable...
n if ur server is connected with other pc on lan .. you can use internet sharing option available in winxp.

Following are the steps to enable Internetsharing for other pcs.

How to use Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To use Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter that is configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem that is configured to connect to the Internet.

On the host computer loadTOCNode(3, 'summary'); On the host computer, follow these steps to share the Internet connection:
  1. Log on to the host computer as Administrator or as Owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Network and Internet Connections.
  4. Click Network Connections.

NH1005 network hub

I assume that besides the 2 computers you also have a cable or dsl modem connected to the hub in order to provide the actual connection to the internet.

The problem may be the fact that this is a hub and not a router or gateway. The problem is that although it will allow you connect more than 1 computer to the internet, it does not do any good if you Internet Service Provider only supplies you with 1 IP address. You need something that handles Network Address Translation (NAT), like a router or gateway device.

Using laptop and pc on this router

You SHOULD NOT post your personal details here...

The dx esw5 is not a router, it is a switch so it cannot assign an IP to the second PC.

dx esw manual HERE

Which ever PC is turned on first will get an IP assigned by the modem and the other will not.

My guess is that the service provider for your internet only allows 1 IP to be assigned by the modem.

What model is the modem

I think you need a router to share the internet between 2 PC's
