recently i bought a D-Link Switch (DES-1005D/8D?? i think)
i have optus cable net and a motorolla SB4200 Cable Modem.
seperatly both computers are able to connect to the cable modem with no problem, and internet works fine on them.
but when i connect the computers to the D Link Switch only one of them is able to access the internet.
i have my modem connected to the DLink switch and both computers connected to the DLINK switch all by ethernet cable.
i have tried the power cycle thing turning off everything and then turning them all on in order.
But the problem is that whichever computer is turned on first gets the internet connection and the other one cant find a connection to connect to.
they are both able to successfully connect to the internet via the router but not at the same time.
i called optus and they said sometinhg about Dynamic and Static IP's and couldnt supply anymore information but i wasnt sure what they were talking about and DLINK support costs $40 per question, so asking here.
does anyone have any idea how to get both my computers connected at the same time.
