OK I have a network with 3 computers... 2 Windows XP and 1 Linux Box.

There is a hub in a room with one XP machine.... I ran a cable a while back for my other windows xp machine. The problem I am having is getting my Linux machine on the network. I am putting it in the room w/o the hub. My machine in that room has 2 NICs. I created a bridge between LAN 1 and LAN 2 in WinXP networking, and I can ping the linux machine, but hte XP machine can not be pinged from the linux machine. Am I doing something wrong?

WinXP: 192.168.0.1 / Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Bridge: 192.168.0.210 / Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Linux: 192.168.0.69 / Gateway: 192.168.0.1

EDIT: for those who didn't get it, I used a crossover to go from Linux -> Lan 2 XP

I was using IPs....

I think the problem is with the bridge, but I don't know how to use the bridge exactly...

what are you trying to do?

ok, lemme get this straight,

modem > hub > XP 1 and XP 2

XP 2 has 2 nic and wants to use Linux off of that.

This is fairly complicated for what you are trying to do, the easiest route is to either run another cable from the HUB or get a router. Unless you have more than 1 static IP from your ISP you will need to either use a router or plug the internet into the XP PC with 2 NIC's, hookup the modem to one NIC and then connect the hub to the second nic. then use ICS and connect the two client PC's into the hub. Otherwize you will have to setup a routing table to direct traffic.

I know that would be the easiest way, just thought it could be done :)

Just called my dad... picking me up another hub on his way home :)

you dont want another HUB, if youa re going to spend money, just buy a router and plug everything in to it.

How can you have WinXP and Gateway on the same IP?

A router is pointless for me, I am dial-up.. and I can get a hub for CHEAP... routers would cost me more

ah OK, I didn't think youd be able to share internet access with a hub, I just assume everyone has DSL or cable. You shouldn't need another hub, just plug all the PC's into one, routing through the XP box with a second NIC is overcomplicating things.

I just don't want have to run another drop... the hub is a different room then the 2 machines... it is in another room

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
