Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC

Anybody who could help me set up!!!

I have this pro set ethernet in my main computer connected from the router which has 4 more computers connected to it. I connected the Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC in the main computer and used it as the modem for the wireless broadband internet connection. From the other ethernet card pro set, I connected an outgoing cable to another 8 port switch. Both ethernets's status says "connected" but only mymain computer can browse the internet and the rest of the computers cannot. Why is that so? Please help, anyone?

Have you run ICS - Internet connection sharing on all the computers? Do the main one first.

Trying to understand what you have

The main computer is connect via the LAN card with a Ethernet cable to the router,

Via one of the other router port an 8-port switch is connected and 4 pc’s is connected to the switch

The main pc an access the Internet but the other can’t is that correct
