I think that you need to make sure your first pc does a NAT translation, because most probably your ISP only gives out 1 per modem. So when you use the wizard make sure it creates a NAT for the other 9 pc's

What you could be doing is configure the BSNL modem to connect through PPPoE. Enable DHCP on it and then plug it into the switch.

There is another option for the problem. Just buy a router switch which has 16 port, with the help of this you can connect to 16 pcs in LAN.
