With different IP addresses assigned by your ISP? This makes a difference
to the topology.

Then plug the hub into one of the wired ports of the router.

So you are intentionally putting your desktops outside your firewall? Why?
Why not set it up as a lan ?

Re: Cannot contact wired computer from wireless network


Not nearly the same setup, just cable>WRT54GS>cat5>desktop/xp  and WMP54GS
in my garage PC/Win2K. After loading Win2k on new HDD I would get a network
cable unplugged, coupled with a no internet access message. Followed all the
Linksys help and troubleshooting tips and got nowhere. So, before I
relinquished my dignity and called for help, I unplugged the modem and
router from the wall. Gave it a few minutes, and fired it all back up.
Connections made, everything's good. Honestly, I can't think of any other
relevant thing that I did.

Re: Cannot contact wired computer from wireless network




Is your ISP using a DHCP network? So the IP address for both your wired

PC's are coming through the modem, then through the hub, and to the

approprite PC...

Then you have a wireless router on the same LAN with DHCP enabled

using the same hub as the modem and the wired PCs...





Also what OS are you running on the desktops and laptop?
