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

Does the D-Link DES 1016D 16x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch accept either of strait-through or crossover cat 5e cable configuration to NICs?


Auto MDI/MDIX Crossover
All ports support auto-negotiating MDI/MDIX detection, which eliminates the need for crossover cables or uplink ports. The DES-1016D is the perfect choice for Plug-&-Play support for 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T networks.

See -->> http://www.d-link.co.za/des-1016d.php for further specs.

Hope this helps.

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.

Rashish

All 16 ports are not working


How are they not working?

Check to make sure it is plugged in. Also, try using a different Ethernet cable if you are using the same one to test all ports. If the problem is you are not getting a connection to the internet or something, make sure the router is plugged into the switch and that you have properly set up your network.

D-Link DES-1016D make the network failure


Is this a brand new switch? Or did it come from somewhere else? It might have an IP address assigned to it that is interfering with the rest of your network.

Try plugging in a laptop only to the switch and give the laptop a static IP, see if you can access the configuration of the switch.
