I've got a cable modem ->FW (w/NAT) ->Hub (3Com)
Off the hub I have 2 PCs, both running XP with no fw, and the Linksys
Off the Linksys I have one PC using the Linksys USB wireless adapter and a
couple of laptops using built in or Linksys PCMCIA adapters.
The FW (IPcop 1.4) is also the DHCP server for my network.
The wired network is 192.168.0.x/24 with the Linksys at .21.
The Liksys uses its own DHCP and the wireless side of thins is
192.168.1.x/24 with the Linksys itself at .1 and the DHCP range starting at
I'd like all of them to reside in the same workgroup so that I can access
files off of any of them from any of them. This does not work.
From the Linkys' ping command I can ping the wired PCs, but not the wireless
ones. Is there a way to set the Linksys up as just a bridge or something,
passing the DHCP request to the FW/DHCP server and keeping everything in the
192.169.0x range? Or is there a some other way of doing things? I've
looked at every single setting in the darn thing and cannot figure this out,
and the Linksys web site isn't of much help.
