Ping, but no internet
Posted on 2005-04-13
I have a home network with 4 boxes behind a SmoothWall and a DLink 614+ used as a wireless access point.
Four clients are 192.168.30.1 - 4, the SmoothWall is 192.168.30.250, the DLink is 192.168.30.100.
All the clients but one are behaving well. The XP box sees all the boxes on the LAN and it will ping the Smoothie and the DLink. It also pings YAHOO.com and other internet sites.
I can access the Smoothwall through IE.
However, an attempt to access the DLink through IE yields a "connection refused" error, as well as any attempt to access internet sites, either w/ IE or w/ Netscape.
The XP is configured w/ a static IP of 192.168.30.1 w/ Subnet 255.255.255.0 and the Gateway and DNS Server are set to the Smoothwall.
Everything looks the same as the boxes that are happy on the network, but this one surely does not connect.
What do I do now?
