Default Connecting 2 Computers is Not Working

sponsored links


I have earthlink cable internet and i'm trying to hook both of my computers online. I have tried using Linksys router and also a Netgear Switch, both of them failed to give both computers online access.

With the Linksys Router Model BEFSR41 ver.2 i pluged the cable from modem to WAN, then i plugged the cables from the router to each of my computers. On first computer my ip becomes and on the second one is the same but the last number is 101. When i check the connection status it says that the ip has been given by DHCP, but when i try to access the internet i cant from either computer. If anyone can help me solve this or has any ideas that i can try, even setting up the router differently please let me know and i will try them.

and with the Netgear switch, i connect all the cables etc. and then i get a connection on one computer like and the other one doesnt get any connection. Idk what i can do with this.

any other help would be much appreciated.
