The switch must also be plugged into your DHCP server.
This is likely your router.

Many ways to do IP address assignment and we don't know what your network does. Is the server running a DHCP service, and how does it get its address? Does it have a public IP, or is it on a local NAT subnet behind a router?


My home setup looks like this:
[code]
ISP
|
|
Cable Modem
|
|
Router/DHCP/Switch/Wireless_AP---------------
| | | | : :
WS WS WS Server Laptop Laptop
[/code]

Where "|" represents a wired connection and ":" is wireless. There is one public IP address assigned by the ISP which goes to the router. It passes out private addresses in the 192.168.1.0/24 range using NAT to through the router to get to the outside world. If things are different on your network, please describe.
