Router and Switch problems

  paranomia 07:34 31 Oct 03

I have a 4 port router which has worked perfectly connecting our computers to broadband at home but I needed to add a couple more points in the house. Looking at the descriptions of networks on the internet I understood that I needed to add a switch to one of the ports. I have added an 8 port switch but have found that I can only have one computer working on the switch at a time. Eventually I got an error message telling me that two machines had the same IP address - anyone know how I change the addresses on the switch or have a got totally the wrong idea... as usual!

Forget it everyone! I hadn't set a high enough range on the router... DOH! I blame it on the red wine...
