I need your help,
I have a network here which have 4 computers connected & one network printer. They all operate perfectly through a normal switch "Netgear" (Which I call a hub) that doesn't have any uplink port in it.
The other day I connected with the Internet & wanted to make all my PCs on the network works on the internet. So, the ISP provided me with a router that has only 4 ports & wireless. I configured one PC to connect to it through wireless & the internet works normally BUT
How can I make the rest of the PCs in the network to connect to the internet?
Some suggest connecting the router to the switch through uplink but I don’t have that port on any of the devices that have uplink!
Some suggested using a cross over cable & connect the router to the switch!
The network is using 169.##.##.## class B IP & all configured manually "Statics" But the router comes with class A IP 10.1.1.##.
So, I was thinking of disable the DHCP from the router & occupy all the 4 ports in the router & connect the switch to the router. Do you think that will work? Or do I need to connect using croX over cable? Do I need to configure specific IP address or play with the internet option setting by the LAN settings through configuration scripts through one computer only connected to the internet & the rest connect through it?
Help me please....
