You must use a router to share an internet connection, not a hub or a switch. A hub or a switch does not have the necessary functionality to share an internet connection in that configuration.

    You must use a router, not a hub or switch. Plug the broadband modem into the WAN port of the router and the other two computers into the the LAN ports. A hub or switch does not have the necessary functionality to share an internet connection in that configuration. It does not have NAT (Network Address Translation) to share the internet connection between the computers on the network or DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) to automatically configure the network settings on each of the computers.

How to connect des-1005d


The new model. Just plug it in. No configurations. Any port for any use. The selling point is unmanaged. Look for the problem somewhere else (including the cables) till you are sure it's the switch. Then it needs to be replace.

The older model uses standard cabling practices, but still very versatile.

Does d link des 1016d provides dynamis addresses to network printers?


Hi,
DLink DES 1016D is seems to be an Layer 2 unmanaged switch which can not provide IP addresses.
If this switch is connected with a router or a DHCP server then it can pass the IP address to any connected device.

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!
