    So I'm trying to connect my internet via a switch I got but it doesn't seem to work. I have a router that I connected a CAT5 internet cable from and into my switch which seems to work just fine but when I then connect a CAT5 internet cable from the switch and to my desktop computer nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

    I have a Jensen Scandinavia - Fast Ethernet Switch, 5 port. The power light is on and the light that shows that my cable from the router and to the switch is working. But the light for my other CAT5 cable that goes to my computer isn't on so there's something not right. Since I'm not good with these things I'm asking you to please help me!

    Try a different cable from switch to computer.
