Assign IP address to device?

I was told to install that switch. I'm not sure if that model is what was needed. Kinda overkill.

So what I need to do for now is allow about 9 device to get assigned an IP address (each different) like

a regular home internet router.

 

With the default config all the device are visible on the connected PC but they all have the same IP.

I was not able to find anything about how to get a connected device list or Ip list (like you can see on home products).

 

So is that possible at all or it's not what that switch is designed for?

 

Thanks.

Hello kapty, 

 

Welcome to the community! 

 

The main purpose of the switch is to add ports to an existing router, divide the network (using VLANs) and control traffic, and add restrictions (ACLs). The IP lists will be available on the DHCP server (router/firewall/server) since it is the one responsible for the designation/leasing of the IP addresses. Also, you may want to check the router that you are using when creating VLANs with routing, you'll need to have a router that is VLAN-aware. Can you provide a network diagram on what you are planning to accomplish?
