RPC: Timed Out


After finally getting the wireless USB adapter going on the machine, I found out that it broke the NFS setup we had. The wireless USB adapter was installed on the client (machine name chemicalbrothers), which communicated with the YP server (machine name brubeck), and was given a new IP address

Since then whenenver chemicalbrothers' NFS tries to mount any of the files listed in /etc/fstab, we get the following errors:

Listening to NIS domain server: [failed]
mount: RPC Timed out.

The /var/log/messages on brubeck indicate that the mount authorization request was made from chemicalbrothers; however, either brubeck isn't sending out a message back or chemicalbrothers can't receive it.

I'm a newbie at this and sysadmin isn't my thing. It would be great if any of you could give me any suggestions.

Thanks so much,
