    there are four computers, only two of them are authorized for internet, the isp says the first two to connect will have acces, (this is not always the case) how do I get the computers to see each other and to have two of them getting cable interntet? I have to set the nics to have the ip assigned autmatic for the computers to get the isp ip. How do I set the other computers to have all networked and sharing the net printer?
    Actually we have to simple swithes 5 ports each, how can accomplish this with just one switch and what model or reference should I use?

      Get a Linksys BEFSX41 Cable/DSL Firewall Router. Should cost around $50.

      If your ISP has assigned you a static IP address, put one in when going through the configuration. This allows you to use only 1 IP address. Configure the Linksys router to be your DHCP server. This way you can have ALL of your PCs on your network use the Internet connection, while only ever using 1 IP address ecternally. The Linksys router will assign IP addresses like 192.168.1.x internally (the private network range).

      The box is a 4-port router, but you can daisy-chain fromother switches.

      Hope this helps.

      if it’s only a few computers go to local computer store and buy a home router. make sure all the pc’s are dhcp, and this will solve all of your problems… assuming you know how to read a manual.

      assuming that all your computers are on LAN, run a proxy server (e.g. analogx) on the computer on which you have internet access and configure rest of the computers to use the IP address of the computer on which you have i-net access using following steps in IE:
      Tools, Internet Options, Connections, Lan Settings and select the proxy settings and enter the IP address of your computer on which you have i-net.
