    I bought a Dynex DX-ESW5.  It works great with my cable modem and my Mac, but I can't get my PC to work through it.  I just get the message:  web page can not be displayed.  I've gone through the diagnostics the PC has to offer but still can't get it to work.  There was no manual with this product so I don't know if there's something I need to do to get my PC to recognize the Dynex.
    My email is:  trentnmontesmom@yahoo.com if you have a solution or even a phone number I can call.  Thank you!

Can a dynex DX-ESW5 act as a print server?


No. You need a router to set / obtain an IP or connect it directly to the computer RS232 serial port. No network required, but is old school and may be difficult. Specially with MAC. You are better off getting a new router.

The modem has likely assigned it's IP address to the MAC address of the PC.
We need it to assign an IP address to the WAN port MAC address of the router!
When you hook up the router, the modem is no longer sending data to the correct MAC address.
Unplug the power to both the modem and the router.
Power up the router FIRST, and wait for it to complete it's initialization.
Once the lights have settled down on the router, power up the modem.
Wait for it to fully initialize.
NOW turn on your PC or laptop, and everything should be working just fine.
If not, post a reply or add a comment to this post, and I will try to further assist you.

What wires go into the back of the Dynex 5 Port 10/100 Fast Ethernet Switch?


A switch is a device for networking computers printers or other devices with an ethernet port. Most common scenario would be to hook a cat5 cable from your broadband router's lan port to Port 1 and then connect your other ethernet devices to the remaining ports. In order for the devices to cmmunicate you'll want to make sure that they are on the same ip subnet. Usually, 192.168.1.x.
Your router may be 192.168.1.1, your PC 192.168.1.100 Printer 192.168.1.101. Each device needs a unique IP address.
Hope that helps.

I am trying to connect a dynex DX-ESW5 swith to my netgear WNR2000 router


Modem (DSL or Cable) -> Router (WAN port), Router (LAN port) -> Switch.
Use Ethernet cable.
If that does not solve your problem, please give me more details.
There is really nothing to it - it is very easy.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Cannot use more than 1 computer with my 5 port router


Start with buying a router. The Dx-ESW5 is a 5-port switch, not a router. http://dynexproducts.com/t-faqs_dx_esw5.aspx

You could make it work, but you'd have to assign IP addresses to each of the machines connected to the Internet. For security and a number of other reasons, it's quicker and easier to just grab a router on sale at your local office supply place for $30 bucks or so.

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
