Unhappy mandrake and a dlink router


I am running mandrake 9. My son is using mandrake 9 and Win 98 on different partitions on his computer. We connect to the internet with a dlink di-704p broadband router. We can both access the internet with no problems. When i was running win 98 we could both access the internet and see one another on the lan at the same time. it was heaven. Now I cannot seem to figure out how i would go about finding him when he is logged into win98 let alone when he is using mandrake.
I am a newbie to linux and for the life of me, extremely confused about figuring out our connection with this router.
the router ip is 192.168.0.1
my dhcp ip is 192.168.0.153
my sons dhcp is 192.168.0.121

what do I do?

Hi Early7777,
Do you want to just figure out if your sons computer if up or not.

In that case there is a way you can find this out from your Mdk 9.0 system using Samba.
1. When your sons computer is booted to Win98, just start a samba browser like LinNeighborhood and see what systems are up in your LAN, just like you did in Win98.
2. If he is using Mandrake 9.0, you'd need to start the samba server in his system ( using Mandrake control center). Now on your system again start the samba browser and find out what systems are up on your LAN.

1. sharing files between the two systems, again samba can be used to mount the remote shared directories
2. for playing games, it will depend on the gmae you are playing. If the gmae supports playing across a LAN, then see the games manual for more info.

For your information, there are two ways of sahring files on a Linux/Unix system.
- NFS but can be used between Linux systems only
- Samba can be used in a mixed LAN( Linux-Win and even Linux-Linux)
I suggest you go to the linux documentation project and read the samba how-to.

Some Linux distros like Lycoris, ELX have a network browser similar to windows network neighborhood.
