DSL router assigns DHCP IP, but can't ping router (winxp appears not to listen for packets after getting IP)
Posted on 2003-03-28
Win XP client gets an IP via DHCP sucessfully, sets default_gateway properly and it's MAC is seen in the Siemens Router as a registered DHCP client with the correct hostname/IP, from another system.
It's a pretty simple config:
-4 port dsl router
-Intel box running rh8, winXP, winME partitions
-Sun box running S8, notrouter with single interface
router = 10.10.10.10 (I've tried 192.168.1.1 same results)
IP = set by router 10.10.10.82
DNS = assignned by DHCP 10.10.10.10
NetBIOS = disabled
WINS = disabled
Same hardware works fine running on the Linux Partition and in Win_ME part. with sniffer application active to resolve ARP requests. On Win_ME part. the same errors occur unless the sniffer program is running.
Route print shows valid default gateway 10.10.10.10
ipconfig/all shows valid IP assigned, gate, dns, leasetimes, etc...
I would just use the workaround that works for Win_ME (i.e. run sniffer app in background), but I can't, sniffer fails to find a valid network device and complains about multiple ethernet devices being installed.
ping to router gets "request timed out" and I see the WinXP box searching for the router, the router responds, but the data packets are not recieved (according to status).
I run a snoop on a Solaris box and I see the XP box constantly sending out packets "10.10.10.82 -> who is 10.10.10.10, who is 10.10.10.10"
what the fudge is up with that?
