Thanks. Very strange setup and I could never make it work with switches without assigning static IPs to client PCs. Ill leave this open in case you get into issues with it.

As I said, it works fine with even the simplest hub. The clients are connected to the router via said hub. Dynamic IPs is no problem.

Powerlan is just how I'm connected to my router, might a wel be a 20m cable, makes no difference (in this case).

Powerlan is easy and not that expensive. My set is about 60 euros, "200 mbit". My router is connected to 1 powerlan adapter. Then it goes through my electricity net to the other powerlan. That one is connected to my switch. And all computers are connected to that switch, all use dhcp. It works perfectly, as it's supposed to btw .

Replace the powerlan adapters with a cable and it works exactly the same. I had that setup in my previous house. I've setup multiple home networks like that, works every time.

Just a quick update for this thread

The new setup has been laid out and it works perfectly. No need for manual IP's or anything. Just plug in, and i got connection.

Fun fact also: With the old setup i got about 40-50% of the connection speed (8 to 10Mbit of 20Mbit) that was available to me, but with this setup i get about 90 to 100% (!) (50Mbit of 50Mbit)
