For a start, make sure you have every computer connected to the switch and all have IP address assigned or Automatically assigned by a DHCP server. Once you have connectivity, then you can join them all to the same work group. For example, Home or LAN. A router usually has a built in DHCP server in it so just use that instead of assigning each computer a IP address manually.

Is that enough information or do you need more? :thumbsup:

No. You need to click My computer PROPERTIES and navigate to where you set the computer name and workgroup. Just make sure to enter the same workgroup name to all 4 but, of course, different computer names. Normally, if in your network properties you've allowed to get DHCP and DNS automatically, rebooting the computers will do the rest.

Connect your modem/router to the switch and all the computers to the switch using a straight through cabling.

Now depending on how u want it u can set the computers to get Ip's automatically or u an set them with fixed IP addresses. its easier for u to set it for automatic ip addressing so u don't have to worry about configuring ur router and puting the gateway on the PC....
