administrators are so stupid some times. Its a relief I can reassign IPs without having to be an administrator (which is hilariously funny at LANs I go to where there is NO network security (at school we host LANs) and all the stupid annoying people that netsend you in the middle of a round of CS get ****** over by me releasing their IP. That jack*** that plugged me into the uplink port didn't figure out that he had to reset IP for 4 hours)..... sorry for getting off topic... but the ip thing might be it. Do you (topic starter) know how to check the IP of your computer(s) on your network, If you are auto assigning IPs, it could be a Windows-Linux error or something...

In windows, type in:

ipconfig /all

In linux, type in:

ifconfig

They will tell everything about your inet connection.

Modem & Router are a combination and it's an Actiontec wireless DSL gateway. ISP is UK Online.

If I check the activity log on the modem/router everything shows up (requests for sites etc.) but I will look into the dropped packets. I don't believe the IP's are conflicting but they are being auto-assigned.

If it is auto-assign, through dhcp, etc, conflicting ips is not a problem. As said, check for dropped packets. I believe http://www.dslreports.com has a packet tester.

what I was saying was that linux could conflict with windows auto assign. I know on my friends network that linux kept setting up his computer as the internet gateway, when the internet gateway was his dads computer. He had to go and manually change all the ips on all the computers, and then force linux to accept his settings. So wierd things like that happen.

Firstly only his computer is connected to the modem/router and we did a "hard reboot" (reset modem/router to factory defaults) but to no avail. However, some information has come to light.

It appears (after installing Windows and finding internet wasn't working there either) that a program must be run to "start" the modem/router and on each client machine before the modem/router "accepts" it. Though this doesn't explain why some websites work.

EDIT: I also should mention I happened to crash FC3 on my machine the same way Windows would crash. I told it to shutdown and it froze Still responded when I hit the power button though so *shrugs* Very odd

I knew what you meant but if that was the case, his setup was wrong and shoul've been:
1.) Linux Box --> router --> modem
1 1/2.) Samba or any kind of sharing.
2.) Win Box --> router

So I still believe that even though what you have said, conflicting ips should not be the problem.

I'm yet to actually get to this forum on a Linux machine! Very tempted to go and access it using eLinks on my server just to change that fact.

BTW the modem & router are a combination thing.

Here is the modem/router (I believe)

Thats pretty nice. Do you have regular DSL, or ADSL2 (your router supports it).
