Hi, I'm very new to linux but I have had a home win network for a few years. I just bought a laptop a few months ago. And I just got wlan working on it, so I bought a wireless router and replaced it with the one that was standing as a switch. It should just work, and it did for a vile. But then I found out I couldn't get access to the rest of my computers, couldn't even ping them. The only thing working was my internet connection and then that stop working to. I think the wireless signals might be interfering with my internet connection that is also wireless. And Internet starts working again for a vile when I reset the adsl box that is connected to my router (not the wireless one) and the antenna outside. So here are my questions:
Can I have both the network card and the wireless card active at the same time?
Way can't I connect to my other computers when it goes trough one switch and one router to go online but do not notice anything else connected to the boxes? Do I need to change setting in the switch?
Can one wireless setup interfere with and other? Like in this case wireless adsl connected to wireless lan?
Oh, and where do I set up dsn in debian? I think I'm just using setting left over from a dhcp lookup, however dsn settings is only nessesary for the router or am I way off?
I will proably figure this out on my own EVENTUALLY but if anyone can point me in the right direction it would proably save me some time. Besides if keep fixing everything myself I am never going to be a part of this forum
