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.

To set up the router you need in the first place to connect to the router with a wired connection.

Once you have configured your wireless connections then you can continue wirelessly.

You will need a wireless router with a built in switch. Most of them these days will have a built in switch. Here is a picture detailing what I am talking about.

You're internet connection goes into the ADSL port. Now, it will be broadcast WIRELESSLY through the antenna to your laptop. With this example, you could connect 4 more WIRED computers through the LAN ports. The built in switch is the division of the connection into the separate LAN ports.

I trust that this will help you greatly and look forward to your response!

Problem with signal reaching PC when away from the router


On the wireless card there is two wires connected to it, a black wire and a white wire. Try reseating both of those wires back onto the wireless card.

If that doesn't do it then go ahead and reseat the wireless card itself back into the slot and see if that does it.

On both of these steps be sure to turn the laptop off first before doing them. Then turn the laptop on in both steps.

If that doesn't do it then your wireless card is faulty and needs to be replaced.

a couple of question for you, is your wireless secure or did you enable security features like wep or wpa, how many people authorise people are on your network. if not secure, secure your wireless network, hackers like to kick people off their own system, upgrade the firm ware on your router, for the latest compatibility it will fix issues that arise and finally do a bios upgrade on your laptop.

NETGEAR wgr614 cable wireless router


Hello,
have you tried to follow the manual chapter 3, page 3-1 ?
If you lost your manual you can find one here:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/wgr614v6_ref_man_20Apr05.pdf

One of your computers can go online because its using a wired connection to the router, but the wireless clients cannot access the connection - is this right?

Then you only need to setup the wireless part in the router.
