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

Everything is plugged into a router and not a swtich?

Restart your PC and see if that works. The IP address probably has to be reassigned to your PC and that should fix it.

Linksys sd208 reset


The reset button is usually at the back of the router. If you are unable to locate it you can reset it using a web based set-up page. Make sure you connect your router to a PC using wired connection and perform the following steps:
Step 1:
Launch a web browser like Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
In the Address bar, enter "192.168.1.1" as the router's default IP address then press [Enter]. If this doesn't work or if the IP address of your router has been changed, enter it instead.
Step 3:
Enter "admin" in the Password field then leave the User name blank. If you have set up a User name and Password for your Linksys router before, enter your personalized credentials instead.
QUICK TIP: For Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers, you can enter "http://myrouter.local" on the Address bar to access its web-based setup page.
The router's web-based setup page should now appear from here you can reset the router.

How do i set up my linksys to my laptop using a modem


If your modem is not one of the hybrid modem/router that has dhcp built in then what you need is a router instead of a switch. Think of a switch as a 2way phone adapter which just splits the signal and allows you to plug more phones or in this case PC's in. The problem is, your modem will only accept and bind to one mac address (PC). Get a router, plug the modem into the wan port of the router, now the modem binds to the router, you plug your pc's into the ethernet ports, if you need additonal ports you could plug in your switch to one of the ethernet ports but these days most folks have wireless on their laptops or desktops. When you purchase a router get one that has G or N standard, then you can broadcast your internet and enjoy it without all the wires.

Your post is a little vague, but I suspect if you reset your router, that may fix it, or even perhaps a entire re-setup the router again. Reset everything and work just with the PC wired and a router,set that up first and get that going, then work out from there.

Router issues in my apartment.


When to moved into the penthouse, there are more walls between the wireless router and the laptop in the bedroom. The walls are probably reinforced concrete walls which will stop or weaken the radio waves penetrating into different rooms. When you lived in a house this was not a problem.
The only way to solve this problem is to move the wireless router near an opening such as a door and move the laptop as close as possible to the wireless router to get a better signal strength.
The outer way is to install a wireless repeater or connect a long network cable to the router and the laptop.

Router failed numerous times so i bought a netgear fs605 5 port switch to hard wire in a ps3 and my dell lap top. can only run one or the other. not both at the same time. what is wrong?


The FS605 is a switch, not a router. You can only run one device at at time because you only have one ip address. You need a router between the internet and your switch if you want to use more than one device at a time.

I have a cable modem. from the cable modem I go to a 5 port hub


That is because most cabel internet providers only gives you one public IP. Please go to a Best Buy, Office Depot, Staples, Walmart, or Targer, and ask for a LinkSys Router. The router will do NAT (Network Address Translation) that will allow more than one PC share the single public IP. This will solve your problem and will cost an estimated $30.00. The router is simple to hook up, just plug the cabel from your modem into the Internet/WAN port on the router. And the two computers into any of the other ports. Be sure to unplug both cable modem and router then plug up the cable modem first, once the ready light is on, plug up the router.

Yes, but you'll need a crossover cable to connect the two routers. You could buy a hub or a switch. They are easier to configure and cheaper.
