    What do you want to configure?
    If you want to connect your switch to your router just go and get an ethernet-cable and connect one of the 4 router-ports with one of the 16 switchports.

    If it doesn't work because these devices don't use AutoMDI-X (don't know if they do but if not, the port-LEDs stay dark), then you must use the uplink-port on the switch side or get a crossover ethernet-cable.

    You should do this:

    Internet --> straight cable --> WAN on router
    any LAN port on router --> crossover cable --> any port on switch

    Then you should configure your router (settings you can ask your ISP) and your computers with the correct settings (for example automatic DHCP taken from the router).

    First you have to know your ISP's settings (IP Address, Gateway, DNS, Subnet Mask, connection type).
    Then you connect to the router's IP (by default, 192.168.1.1). You can do that on Internet Explorer typing:
    http://192.168.1.1
    The default password is "admin", with no username.
    You configure your ISP's settings there.

    Then you connect everything like I told you to do before.
    Then you configure your NIC (network interface card) with a fixed IP, or better, with automatic settings (the router will provide those settings if you enable DHCP on it).

    Why serial cable? You should connect your NIC with a normal ethernet UTP cable to any of the router's LAN connectors.

    Wait a minute... what were your settings before changing everithing?
    You should point on the browser to your router's IP. Your router's IP should be your PC's gateway IP adress. So check on your previous settings, or set your computer to take the IP automatically and check with ipconfig what is your gateway.
    Then set up your router.

    How to set up in my router's IP

    I have no C.D

    That's Cryping configuration is right.

    I don't remember the color codes for the cables, but if both ends of the cable have the same order, then it's probably OK.

    You don't need a CD to set up the router, you do it by typing the router's LAN IP on Internet Explorer.

    Router's Ip is 169.254.93.174

    Fancy,

    you need to first establish a good internet connection. Use the following configuration:

    pc--->switch--->router--->modem--->Internet

    Here's the "type b" color scheme for straight thru cabling from left to right:

    orange/white, orange, green/white, blue, blue/white, green, brown/white, brown

    Unless your switch is a gateway router of some sort, ain't nuthin happening. What do you use to connect to the internet? Do you have a modem that connects to your BEFSR or are you using another device such as a combination router/modem? If you are using just an adsl modem or a cable modem, the next device in line should be your BEFSR41 router.

    Next, connect a "straight thru" cable that came with your router from one of the 4 LAN ports on the router to your switch's "midi-x" port (this port supports "auto switching"; If none of your ports are auto-switcyhing, then keep using your crossover cable. (Incidentally, you should have a designated "uplink" port if you need to connect additional devices (hub, switch, router) to your switch).

    From there, you need another "straight thru" cable to go from your switch to your computer(s).

    As long as you see 169.x.x.x, you have "no" internet connection. This is what you need to clear up before trying to work on any additional configuration.

    Give it a try from there...
