layout your network. i.e. cable/dsl modem, router, switch. Is your router issuing ip address via dhcp? Or are you using static ip addresses?
What's the switch brand/model?

Lots of reasons can be causing this ... we need your help in describing your set up.

problem is that if you dont have something issuing IP addresses (DHCP from a router) to your pc's then you have to go with static ip addresses on each pc. Go to each pc and manually input addresses in the 10.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x. or 192.168.x.x. private address ranges, with subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

For example:

PC #1 = 10.1.2.2 255.255.255.0
PC #2 = 10.1.2.3 255.255.255.0
PC #3 = 10.1.2.4 255.255.255.0

and you will also need to configure your default gateway to be the ip address your isp gave you.

thanks

I don't know if all of the names are correct since my windows isn't in english, but I'll try.
Go to control panel -> network options then there is this "LAN thing" (don't have a clue what u call it) right click on it and select properties, then choose internet protocol (TCP/IP) and then click on properties. From there u can change ur IP and subnet mask. Might be a bit unclear because don't know all of the names but u should find it.

oh, btw I have windows XP. If you have some different windows the IP settings might be in another place.

There's several ways to access your network connections, here's one way of doing it:

Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>Communications>>Network Connections

Right-Click Local Area Connection>>Properties

Scroll down in the "this connection uses the following items">>select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)>>select properties.

Select "Use the following IP Address" and input the numbers. Good luck.
