nfs/cups server suddenly inaccessible (dapper)

running dapper on both laptop and home desktop. desktop is my nfs server, and cups server.

after upgrading to feisty, then reinstalling dapper, i can't get access to the server- no nfs, no cups, no vncviewer...

unless i'm connected by cable. as far as i know, i haven't done anything on the server that would affect this. i've tried messing around with the server's /etc/exports file; here is its current state, which i believe should open up /home/steve to any computer in the 192.168.1.x pool:


# /etc/exports: the access control list for filesystems which may be exported
#                to NFS clients.  See exports(5).

let me know what else i should post; thanks!

here's some more info:

when i do the following from my wireless laptop:

sudo ifconfig eth1
i can access my server for cups/nfs/vncviewer, but cannot get onto the internet.

to do that, i have to do


sudo dhclient eth1
then i get a new address-, for example- and then i can get on the 'net but not to the home server.

there's something basic wrong here, but it seems to be eluding me for the moment...

still more info:

when i set ip addresses [with ifconfig] in the range of [192.168.1.]4-7, i have vncviewer access, but no internet access.

if i want to get online, i have to use dhclient to request a new address- setting it with ifconfig doesn't work if i want internet access.

but i can't get both at the same time. any ideas?
