Windows XP box losing connection to Linux box after 30 sec.
Ok, here's my problem. When I try to ping my Linux box (Fedora 3) from my Windows XP Pro box it passes for like 30 seconds, but after that I can no longer access my Linux box at all. The wierd thing is that I can ping from my Linux box to my Win box at any time and it always passes. Here is the setup: My Linux box is a bucket that I will be using as a server (Pentium at 400 Mhz, 192 Mb RAM, Realtek LAN Card I don't know which chipset). My Linux box (fixed ip 192.168.0.1) is connected by cable to my Planet WiFi access point (fixed ip 192.168.0.50), and my Win box (fixed ip 192.168.0.10) is connected to the access point by way of a Planet Wireless PCI card. Anyway, I can ping my access point from either box at any time and it always passes. When I click on repair connection on my Windows box connection then I can ping my Linux box again for another 30 seconds, but I lose the connection again after the 30 seconds. I turned off the firewalls on both boxes and still no progress. I have no idea what I am doing wrong! Please help!
