Hi all,

I'm very new at this and keen to learn.  some pointer or resources would
be very helpful at this stage.

I'm wanting to setup a home network with the following configuration :

              10.0.0.2                                  10.0.0.4
              -----------        -------            ----------------
              |         |eth0    |     |        eth0|              |
              | PC1     |--------| hub |------------| server-box   |
              | winxp   |        |     |            |    linux     |
              -----------        -------            ----------------
                                    |                      |wlan0
                                    |                      |192.168.0.1
                                    |                      |
                                    |                      |192.168.0.2
                                ---------             ------------
                                |        |            |          |
                                | adsl   |            |  laptop  |
                                | modem  |            |  winxp   |
                                | router |            |          |
                                ---------             ------------
                               10.0.0.138

My problem lies in the configuration of the linux server box.

My current configuration :

1/ PC1 can see the linux server and the ADSL modem/router.
2/ The linux server can see PC1 and the ADSL modem/router and the laptop.
3/ The laptop can only see the linux server box.

I need the laptop to see PC1 and the ADSL modem/router.
Have I got the right IP addresses?

Any help is appreciated.  Running 2.6 Kernel.

Peter.

OK, you should:
1. create a forwarding iptables firewall on your serverbox, to connect both
networks.

OR

2. re-design your addresses, for example:
        make wlan0 10.0.0.5 and
        make ur laptop 10.0.0.6
        so that they are in the same 'subnet'.

1. need a suggestion to a home network (wire or wireless) behind a Linux firewall

Hi,

I have DSL+linux firewall at home. I have a hub downstairs which I can
hook my laptop to. It works fine. NOw, I'm thinking of taking my
laptop to other place in the house, including upstairs. I have
researched two solutions.

(1) powerline network. It will serve my purpose, but I just could not
find those powerline ethernet adapters in local Fry's electronics. (I
like to be able to return if it does not work).

(2) wifi. I got a Linksys BEFW11S4 (router/AP) and a pcmcia for my
laptop last weekend at Bestbuy. I like to put Linksys AP behind my
linux firewal (so I will have more control). However, the BEFW11s4
simply would not talk to my linux firewall, even they are on the same
lan. I have googled, found out some message with the exact same
problem, but not answer. I have already spent too much time on this.

Would any one suggest an easy way, or a better product, or just a
simple trick that I can resolve the above wi-fi problem? I really do
not mind wire or wireless, as long as I don't have to wire the long
ethernet cable to upstair rooms.

Thank you.
