    It means that you have two access internet with the same IP. It could be that the two devices are providing dhcp in the same subnet.You need to connect your switch with router. It might be that they have default static ip's that are the same.

    Get a wireless router or wired Ethernet router and set up a simple network, then all computers can access to internet. If you use a switch router, you plug the pcs into LAN ports and set each pc to obtain its ip address automatically.

    A switch is a device that allows multiple computers to connect to one Internet connection but it connect computers in same network if you want to access another network (public or Private) you need to use router.
