Lets get these two talking!

a while ago i decided to make an internet connection between one machine running XP, and another running Slackware Linux. I got it setup, got internet sharing ready on XP and ran netconfig on Slack. It all connected, and everything ran wonderfully.

A few weeks/months later, i turned the firewall off so that i could send a file (as it was being blocked). Within a space of 15 seconds i managed to get 3 different worms (isnt windows wonderful)

It took a fair bit of time, but i managed to clean up. Eventually i got connected to the net again, and had no real internet problems. However, Windows was now ignoring my Linux box.

Right now there seems to be no connection between the two of them. I cant even ping windows from linux, and just get a 100% packet loss.

Since nothing has happened hardware wise, i dont understand how the problem itself could be with either ethernet cards. Windows also seems to be telling me that its home network is up and running. Both NICs appear to be fine.

Iv pranced about trying to get it to share an internet connection, but it just wont allow it. It runs its nice little wizard, tells me that its all setup and ready to go.......but nothing.

Iv never had a problem before which appears almost unfixable, but im out of ideas. Maybe you can think of somethign i havent thought of yet?

EDIT - doh, just noticed i put this in the wrong section. Could a nice mod move this to the networking section?

Check IPs from the both sides. Are you 100% sure they're exactly as before?
