instead of the switch...if u wud have been provided a router that wud have been more better. switch can even work but you need one extra LAN card in one Computer and that Computer will be called as server.

1. take the computer for which you are making server, insert the second LAN in that computer.
2. connect your internet connection into the first LAN (inbuilt) on that computer.
3. enter the IP address which you got from your ISP and check whether you can able to use internet on that system.
4. Now make sure that the second LAN is detected and is showing Unplugged.
5. open properties of the first LAN (inbuilt LAN) and then go to "Advanced" option which is available on the top, then check both the boxes and say ok. and close everything.
6. now take an Internet cable which is crimped on both the sides with same colors of wires.
7.connect one end to the second LAN and the other end to the switch.
8. Now open your second LAN properties and go to the TCP/IP properties and there enter IP address as ( or anything you wish Subnet Mask ( and the gateway as (
9. Now open click on the switch and you will get a notification on your server saying that "Local Area Connection 2" is connected.
10. Now take an another Internet cable and one end of that cable should be in any one port of the Switch and the other should be in the second computer.
11. Now you will get a notification that you are connected to internet, open the LAN properties and enter the IP address as ( subnet mask and gateway should be same as server. say ok
12. You will now be able to browse Internet on that particular system now.
13. do the same with the rest of the systems.

and one more thing should be kept in mind that is you wont be able to browse internet Unless or Until your Server Pc is turned ON.
Thank you

i can understand that you have all the resources to get down to business that simple,if you have switch I think you know how to Put the wires in order I think you have 10 cables because you said you have 10 computers as well and I am pretty sure that you have RJ- 45 connectors and 10 network interface cards.RJ- 45 connectors must be 20 of them so that you can join them both side of each an every cable

first step Put the wires in this order starting from the left(put them on RJ-45 connector and when you finish use
a crimper to crimp a a connector )

o white orange
o orange
o white green
o blue
o white blue
o green
o white brown
o brown

second step

connect a cable starting from each of every computer's network card straight to the switch

third step

on xp click on start-double click on control panel- choose network places-double click on network
connection-on network places box-double click it-double TC/IP Protocol-enter IP Address from computer one
for exple to the last one am not sure about the zeros just fill the space and put number at
the end
i read these steps and know how to configure a lan, kindly tell me about ip configure in lan
are you sure about the color combination?
is it
- white orange
- orange
- white green
- blue
- white blue
- green
- white brown
- brown

what I am asking is, is right about the blue and green cable?
because I am also confuse about it, that's why I couldn't connect the computer LAN.
I appreciated for your help Sir,
> Prima
ya it's correct combination.. it's for only stright over connection.. which means for different kind of devices....
when we attach pc with hub or seitch then ,why do n't we use t\following coding greenwhite green......................................
