Default Re: 2nd computer no net?!

I hope soon. My friends are getting anxious :P

So this is what I think is going on.

Modem is plugged into switch. Provider gives me only one IP adress and therfor which ever computer is on gets the ip adress and connects. I need to either purchase a second ip adress or buy a router.a

Is this a good router?

Newegg.com - LINKSYS WRT54GL IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless-G Broadband Router - Wireless Routers

Has 1 wan for the lappies and 4 lans which i can hook the switch to.

I think I know what the problem is. Go to the command prompt and run
ipconfig /all >ip.txt
on both the server and the other machine and post up the contents of ip.txt (make sure to label which is which).

What you need is a router. If you don't need wireless, get one without.
