I have a 10 Mbps hub and a 100 Mbps hub (*not*
10/100, unfortunately), and I want to have devices
on each segment of my network be able to talk to
devices on the other hub.
Here are some specifics: I have a ppro-200 running
Linux (RedHat 6.0 + kernel 2.2.7) and containg two
ethernet cards - a 3com 3c509 (the 10 mbps one)
and a 3c59x (10/100). The 10/100 card is connected
to the fast hub, and the 10 mbps card is connected
to the slow hub (of course).
Now, how do I go about configuring the Linux
machine to route/bridge between these two
interfaces? Before I installed the 100 mbit hub,
everything was on the 10 mbit hub and was on the
network 192.168.1.0. I would like to make adding
the 100 mbps segment as transparent as possible;
i.e., I want to leave everything on 192.168.1.0 so
Windows users can play LAN games between the hubs
and so forth. The only perceptible difference
should be that the 100 mbps users have a faster
connection amongst themselves. Is there a way to
-- fast link - | server | - slow link --
| |--------| |
fast hub slow hub
| | | | | | | | | | | |
(fast devices) (slow devices)
goal: acts as one network (192.168.1.0)
can this be done?
Thanks for your time,
