Your ethernet cable from comcast gets plugged into the wan port of the linksys switch. plug the xbox and laptop to one of the lan ports. the comcast box is a modem/router? without the router it won't assign dhcp addresses

You certainly can. In a real network you have one router and x amount of switches or hubs. Because whats going to happen is your equipment will automatically will ask the switch which will bounce to the router and your router will issue the address to that device.

Yes, this setup will work, assuming your switches are not manageable (you will not configure any ports with separate VLANs on them)

That is a good guess. Many of the switches available for home use are unmanaged, and will take any IP address given to them from the router and generate related IP addresses for the various devices on your network.
If your router has multiple Ethernet connections, you may not need the switch at all...just connect your Ethernet cables to the output plugs from the router.

Hi,

You need a router not a hub or a switch. with the help of the router you can share the comcast cable internet on multiple devices. A hub or a switch can not do this.

Get it replaced with a router. You can buy Linksys or Netgear router.

1008d wanting to know what to plug in


Hi,

The D-Link DES-1008d is an unmanaged switch that does not need any configuration to work. You just need to plug in your device (PC/Xbox/Laptop) into one of the ports of the switch, using an ethernet patch cord, and it would start communicating with it. I think your xbox 360 already includes a patch cable in the box. You also need to connect the 1008d to your DSL/Cable/whatever modem, using a similar ethernet patch cord, in order to get online.

This is all that you need to do as far as your 1008d is concerned.

Cannot share my cable modem connection


You need to connect a router to the cable modem.  The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address.  By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet.  It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet.  You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.

The ethernet cable that goes from the modem goes into the router's port labeled "internet." The other ethernet cable going from the computer goes to the routers ethernet cable port labeled "port 1."
