Question another hard network task


hi all,
I have a small linux server which has 3 netcards. 1 is a cross over and 2 is for wireless AP and 3 is for internet. I have configuered them and created my own firewall for the routing the iptables and sharing the internet over the interfaces. But the problem is that the cross cable pc has an ip of 10.0.0.2 which is running a windows and the other wireless pcs range ip 198.168.0.* also running windows. how can i merge the wireless pcs and the cross calbe one so they can be on the same network? ps i can ping the cross with the wireless and vise versa, everything is working fine except the file sharing.
Thanks a lot,
regards,
Moe

Change the ip address of interface 1 to 192.168.0.x and make sure iptables and/or the firewall rules are updated to reflect the changes.

i did but the ip of AP starts with 198.168.0.x you mean to change the cross over to that range?? but the cross gw has 10.0.0.1 in the linux server and the wireless AP has gw 198.168.0.1 if i changed the cross over interface to 198.168.0.x it will make a conflict in the gateways??

You'll have to add a second gateway. Basically what you need to do is change the IP address of the cross-over interface(the gateway) to something like 192.168.0.56.
You will also have to change the IP address of the client that is connected to the cross-over gw to 192.168.0.*.
