Linksys 5 port Switch problem

Trying to set up a shared internet connection over a home network. The internet connection is a hybrid system through Look, where the uploads are carried through the phone lines and the downloads come in via satellite. The problem we are encountering is the Linksys 5port Switch that we are using isn't assigning local IPs to the client computers. Only one computer can have internet access at any given time and the IP it uses is the public IP from look...a 209 address as opposed to a 192 which would be expected. We are not using ICS or equivalent, the connection is being sent directly to the uplink port of the switch. Any help would be appreciated.
