View Full Version : Netgear router
24th May 2007, 12:31 AM
I have a WPN824v2 netgear router and I am unable to ping my windows computer with my linux computer, However, I am able to ping everything else with my linux box. I am able to ping everything and my linux box on my windows router I was wondering how could I fix this.

That does not sound like a router problem as the router should not actually need to "route" the traffic on the lan. That is just switched when you call a local lan address like "ping 192.168.0.45".
What are the ip addresses of both your linux box and your windows box? What is "everything else" that you are able to ping and their addresses?
Post the output of "route <enter>" when run from the command line.

When I route it seems to want a option put on it, I am not good when it comes to Linux Networking, so I am not sure which option to put.

Do you have windows xp firewall turned on? The above looks fine.
