  1. hi everyone,

    i wanna ask about networking w/ internet connection, I have an ISP which gives me an internet modem with DHCP and that is connected to my 4 port DLINK Router ,
    All 4 PC connected to the router and can access to the internet, and I added 3
    PC and that is connected to my 8-port switch, My problem is how can i configure this 3 Pc to have internet access? My idea is i want to make a Router to Switch connection, Is it possible? Any ideas in configuration, ive read some articles on the internet that says specifying static ip and dns, but can someone pls give me step by step config pls, im just newbie in networking.

    by the way all pc's are in windows xp pro.

    thanks in avdvace

    Run a cable from one of the switch ports to one of the router's LAN ports and that's it. No configuration necessary - it will work just as if the computers connected to the switch were connected directly to the router.
