Hi, We bought a Ethernet Wire Switch a while back but we cant connect 2 computers at once.. Were able to get one computer to work with internet and when we turn it off the second one's internet starts working. Why?? I had a LAN here once and my friend brought a router and that worked so i think its kinda strange.

We've tryed:

Turning internet off and turned off all computers.
Installing according to Windows Help Center at the.
Installed new connections.
Installed the multiple connections thing for family networks.

Help please i think this is kinda strange.

You need a router to share your internet connection with multiple computers. Your ISP only gives you 1 public IP address so you need to use NAT.
