Huawei router / Smartax

Specs: WinVista, AthlonXP 2400/512mb
I have 2 PCs connected with a switch. With a switch is also connected a router (switch is 5xAuto-Uplink and router has only 1 port). Router is set to routing mode and with DHCP starting with addresses from + 240 (pool size). Addresses of PCs are and One PC has WinXP and other has WinVista.
Everything works ok for a few minutes (5min to 30min) and then it stops, i cant go to internet and i dont see any PCs on lan. What could be wrong?

When i disconnect router lan works ok without disconnecting, and when I connect only 1 PC to a switch and then to router internet works ok without disconnecting.

Next time you experience this outage see if you can ping the other pc.

Fact you can't see the other pc when this happens points to the switch as being the source problem.

The ping test should confirm or deny this.

Is the switch just a switch? Are you sure it doesn't have DHCP capabilities? Becuase that would cause this.
