    Best if you connect the switch to a router. You are missing the one final, vital, component.

    In my book, a switch is not a router.
    What are you using to connect to your IP?
    Alternately, what is the brand and model of your "switch"

    I don't think you can with an attitude like that.
    You are missing a component.
    With the switch connected to an IP, by whatever means, you then use CAT5 of CAT6 cables plugged into the switch and the network ports on your computers.

    If you are merely trying to connect the two computers, and not to the internet, all the information you need is in Windows at My Network Places. They have a good system for explaining a good two or three computer network in adequate detail.

    this is the correct way to achieve what you want:
    Code:
    modem---router---systems
    you can insert your switch if you desire like:
    Code:
    modem--router--switch--your systems
    The KEY reason for the router is it has NAT and DHCP services that a switch does not.
    Without NAT+DHCP, your switch would only cause DUPLICATE IP ADDRESSES
    and all systems would fail.

    Now you've been told and get to make the final decision as to how to proceed.
