need help for setting a network using dlink 5 port switch.

hi guys,
i need help trying to make a network with 2 PCs using a dlink 5 port switch.
one of the PC is having a WiFi card as well. i want to create a wired network between PCs and using a straight through cable. even though i disable the WiFi card and assign the static IPs to both system but not able to ping between them. and i want to share internet on other PC through first PC WiFi card.
and both the PCs are on same work group.

am i missing something or doing wrong something and drivers for the cards are installed on both the pc.

any help appreciated.

Are you using a router anywhere? If so why not just use dhcp.

Provide ipconfig /all command outputs.

Open start menu
In seach type cmd, press enter
In command prompt type ipconfig /all

Do that on each pc.
