Hi there,

You will need a network router for that. This device will allow you to connect two or more computer with a single Ethernet/internet line.

Hope this initial info/idea helps. Let me know if you have other concerns.

How do i split out multiple static ip's


You need to attach a DHCP-server to the hub/switch, and configure that DHCP-server to "reserve" a specific IP-address for the MAC-address for the network adapter inside each of the computers that is to receive a "static" IP-address.
For a DHCP-server, you can connect a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the switch-ports to one of the LAN-ports on any "home" wired router. That "home/SOHO" router will become the DHCP-server for all the computers connected to the switch.

I have a 8 port ethernet switch DES-1108 how do i connect it to a DSL cable modem and the 3 computers i have . do i need to use the router still. or what


If the computers only need to communicate with each other then you do not need a router.
Each of the computers must have the same Network name (workgroup) and have the same IP address range. If you have a fixed IP address on each of the computers the IP address range should be the same - for example 192.168.3.xxx (xxx being a number unique to each of the computers, BUT the first 3 group of numbers (IP address range) MUST be the same on all the computers.
If the computers need Internet access then a router is required and if there is insufficient LAN ports on the router then you need to add a network hub connect the router to tht hub and connect the computers to this hub. You would need to configure the computers to obtail an IP address automatically, the router will issue IP address to the computers automatically.
I would not recommend using the Ethernet switch with the router as it would require a more complex configuration.

You mentioned in your question that you had a router. If it is actually a modem, then yes, you need a router.
The reason that the Ethernet hub is not working is that your modem will only give out 1 IP address to one device on the hub. With a router, the router uses the 1 IP address and shares access to the internet via that 1 IP address.
Yes, you'll need a router instead of a hub.

Linksys NH1005 V2.2 Ethernet 10/100 5 Port Hub Router. I cant get the other computers connected to the hub to connect to the internet. I've tried everything.


Hello!

I will just illustrate on how to configure or to set the correct IP addressing;

Assuming that we will manually put IP address on each computer:

PC1:

IP Address: 192.168.1.13
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1

Preffered DNS server: 192.168.1.1

***note that 192.168.1.1 is the IP Address that your ISP gives to you, so on the other computer (see below)


PC2:

IP Address: 192.168.1.18
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1

Preffered DNS server: 192.168.1.1

Hope I was able to help.

Got a hub genius GH4080SE and trying to connect computers, pls advise what is the steps?


Hardware Setup

1 Find the WAN or uplink port of the Ethernet hub. Typically, it is located on the rear of the unit, and it is often separate from the LAN ports.

2 Connect an Ethernet cable from the WAN port of the hub to either the Ethernet port of the internet modem or, if expanding a network, to an empty LAN port on the existing network’s router, switch or hub.

3 Plug an Ethernet cable into one of the LAN ports on the Ethernet hub and connect the other end of cable to the computer or device that will be added to the network. Repeat for any other devices that will need to be on the network.

4 Power up the Ethernet hub and the computers or other devices attached to it. On the front of the hub will be a series of LEDs that correspond to each LAN and WAN port on the hub. Every port that has a cable plugged into it should have one or more of the LEDs lit that represent that port. If not, check the connections and swap out the Ethernet cable if necessary.
Software Setup

1 Configure the network settings on each connected computer. If you are expanding a network and the network uses DCHP, or dynamic IP addressing, no configuration will be necessary. On networks using static IP addressing or on a new network setup using the Ethernet hub, each computer or device must be assigned a unique IP address. Local IP addresses must use the allowed “private” address pools that will not interfere with internet addresses. Acceptable addresses include 192.168.x.x, 172.16.x.x to 172.31.x.x, or 10.x.x.x. The “x” represents a number that is chosen by the user, from 0 to 254. All computers on the network should share the first three numbers in the address, with the final number representing the individual computer. In a network with three computers, for example, the first could be 192.168.1.1, the second could be 192.168.1.2 and the third could be 192.168.1.3, though the final number does not need to be sequential.

2 Click the “Start” button in Windows, select “Control Panel" and double-click the icon labeled “Network Connections.”

3 Right-click the icon for the Ethernet adapter and select “Properties.” Click on the check box marked “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” and press the “Properties” button.

4 Select the radio button labeled “Use the following IP address.” Enter a unique IP address for the computer and the applicable subnet mask. If a router is used on the network, enter the router’s IP address as the default gateway. Press the “OK” button and reboot if necessary.

5 Enable file and printer sharing from the “Properties” dialog for the Ethernet card if files will be transferred between the networked computers.

6 Click the “Start” button, select “Control Panel” and double-click on the “System” icon. Select the “Computer Name” tab and click on the button labeled “Change” to set the computer’s network name. In the “Computer Name” box, enter a unique name for the computer. In the “Member of” section, choose the radio button marked “Workgroup” and enter the workgroup of the network. If setting up a new network, this name can be change but all computers on the network must share the same workgroup name.

7 Verify that all computers can access the network and the Internet if connected.

Hello wots an router somthing to do withs to internet and how do reinstall it


To understand what a router does, you need to know a little bit about how the Internet works. The Internet, the huge world-wide computer network that we surf the World Wide Web on, uses the TCP/IP networking protocol. Data sent over a TCP/IP network is broken down into chunks called "packets", and in order for these packets to get where they need to go on the Internet, something is needed to route them to their destinations (hence the name router). The many networks that make up the Internet are connected to each other by routers, and the routers determine what packets go where. Routers are level 3 devices on the OSI model, which means that they function at the network layer. The OSI model has 7 levels, and each one represents a function when it comes to data communication between two or more computers on a computer network. To understand what I'm talking about in the next paragraph, you need to know about the OSI model and what layer the router represents.

When the average computer user thinks of a router, they probably think of the kind that you can purchase at your local computer store, as opposed to the big ones that route packets on the Internet. That smaller kind of router allows you to share an Internet connection with multiple computers without having to use a computer that acts as a "gateway". If you have a computer network at home and the center of it is a hub or a switch, you need to use a computer that acts as a gateway ("host" computer), as hubs and switches cannot do what a router does (hubs and switches are two other devices that you can purchase at your local computer store to create a network between two or more computers). A router can "intelligently" route TCP/IP packets to IP addresses (unique identifiers on a TCP/IP network) at layer 3, while a hub is just a dumb layer 1 device that sends out packets to all of the computers attached to it, regardless of who sent them out and who they're intended for. A switch is a layer 2 device that routes Ethernet frames by MAC address; Ethernet is a networking standard that home networks are based on, a frame is the Ethernet equivalent of a TCP/IP packet (chunk of data), and a MAC address is a computer's unique identifier at layer 2 (datalink) on an Ethernet network. Although a switch is "smarter" than a hub, it still can't do what a router does. The functions that a router performs are necessary for communication between the computers on your network and computers on other networks on the Internet at the network layer (TCP/IP). Probably the most important thing that a router does is perform NAT, which stands for Network Address Translation. NAT is a technology that allows computers on a network behind an Internet connection to communicate with computers outside the network; to the rest of the Internet the network is a single IP address (the one your ISP gave you), and NAT allows for incoming and outgoing connections between the computers on the network who have their own "internal" IP addresses and the computers outside the network who see only the ISP-assigned IP address. A "gateway" computer using Internet connection sharing software like the kind that Windows comes with performs the same functions as a hardware router, but there are some disadvantages that come with using that setup, like how all of the computers on the network lose Internet access if the gateway computer is offline. If you want to share an Internet connection between two or more computers in your home, a hardware router is the best thing to get for it.

DES-1008D connectivity issues.


Is the modem a DSL or cable model?
Does the router have one ethernet port and a WAN port?
Normally the broadband modem is connected to the WAN port on the router and the ethernet port on the router is then connected to the hub/switch and the computers are then connected to the hub/switch.
The modem gets an unique IP address from your Internet Service Provider and then the router then issues Class "C" IP addresses to each computer that is connected to the switch/hub.

You should try to upgrade to a router. The main differences between a router and a hub is a router has a microcontroller and a hub does not. The router can operate at something called a full duplex which means it can send and receive data at the same time, it will also come with an additional IP address, possibly your internet service provider will only allow a limited number of IP addresses per one line. First unplug another connection and then try your X-box connection.
