Internet connect problem

- G5 1.9 GHz
Hello! This is my first post to this site. I have a DSL connection and when I try to connect to my ISP from an iMac G3(panther 350MHz) and an iMac G5(tiger 1.9GHz) simultaneously through a 3COM 8port switch, only one of them connects while the latter - whichever machine might be - is rejected.I mean that when any second computer tries to connect, it is rejected.I think that it's a matter of network configuration. The two computers can exchange files even with laptops using appletalk.
I have tried to configure DHCP in vain. Same with internet sharing.
Thank you in advance

If both of them will connect no issue - and only problem is that you can only connect one at a time - would look to the router - check for setting that limits # of IP addresses it will hand out at a time
Have mine limited to the # of computers in my house, just another prevention tool to keep outsiders from trying to access my wireless network.I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
