    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.

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.

You need to enter the router configuration. How you do this varies by model, but usually involves typing your gateway address into a web browser. Then, you need to assign your xbox an internal IP address and activate port triggering or forwarding (depending on the sophistication of your device) to send information on the designated ports to the Xbox.RICHARDM69

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
