it sounds like you have two separate networks.

what are you trying to accomplish?

Tnx, Emerald for responding. I have 5 PC's connected to the internet through a wireless router using a TP Link wi-fi receiver. I also have the same 5 PC's connected on a LAN using a TP Link 16 port switch. I want to be able to connect to the internet and at the same time be able to access the PC's on a LAN network so as to be able to see each other and share resources (printers, etc.) while still browsing.

to accomplish that you need to assign a Static IP, matching the IPs of the LAN network, to the computer's LAN card but NO Gateway and DNS

the network mask should be filled in automatically
