hi everyone...
i have got my cable internet and using "cisco" modem (DPQ2160)
the output cable (straight ethernet cable) is connected to port 1 of "D-LINK" switch (DES-1008D), it is an 8 port switch.
port 4 and port 6 are connected to two different systems and are able to access internet...
port 2,3,7 are also connected to other systems but i am unable to use internet...
all connections are made only by straight ethernet cable...
i would also like to make a lan connection such that i could map my drive and share files...
even by making server no problem...

easily solved by placing a router between the switch and the modem

All of your devices need to be in the same IP network. If your router has an address of 192.168.1.1 and a mask = 255.255.255.0 (known as a 24 bit mask) then all of your devices need to addressed 192.168.1.X where X = a value between 2 and 254.
All devices should use the router IP as the "Default Gateway". If you have devices on a totally different network the you need to change them or you need to add a router betwen the two networks. Is your router configured with a DHCP server? If yes, it should be assigning addresses in the proper range when the devices boot up and ask for an IP. If your devices have staticly assigned IP addresses then they will not ask for a new IP address.

Windows PCs:
Check the IP address and config using DOS.

ipconfig /all

As previous told
1. check the ip addresses to be in same class
2.check the Default Gateway should be same as computer in port 4 and 6
3. check the DNS should be same as computer in port 4 and 6
