ethernet switch

i have just linked up my pc and my brothers pc through this 8 way 10/100 switch box we are both both sharing broadband, my connection works fine but i cant get my brothers to work,i was told i might need to register the switch box so i went to run and typed in cmd the ipconfig so i could view all physical addresses but the apparent physical address showing for the switch box won't fit into the boxes i need to register with broadband blueyonder. we are both on xp, i thought at least this way we would be better off because if i need to switch my machine off he could still use his, it's a mentor 8 port switch box, do i register the switch box a different way any help greatly appreciated
