Default Problem with a netopia switch


I currently try to set up a switch on my lan that has a linksys router.
If I don't use the switch (therefore, router <=> computer), no problem
of working (the computer gets an ip from the dhcp, for example,, great !

But If I add the switch to the lan, the computer gets an ip like, and this ip shouldn't exist because the router only gives
ips from to

My interfaces file is :

"iface eth0 inet dhcp[...]"

If I do "ifconfig eth0", the ip comes back to Same if I do "ifdown eth0" and "ifup eth0".

Any ideas so that the computer gets the good ip? (the problem could come
from the switch ?)

And I would specify, I've already tried "iface eth0 inet static", same
