I have 2 network segment 10.5.0.0 and 10.10.0.0 that has 2 vlan. Both vlan are join together. When I ping 10.10.0.42 from 10.5.0.0 vlan, I kept getting inconsistent reply like below:-

C:\Documents and Settings>ping 10.10.0.42

Pinging 10.10.0.42 with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 10.10.0.45: bytes=32 time=2ms TTL=99
Reply from 10.10.0.23: bytes=32 time=4ms TTL=99
Reply from 10.10.0.24: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=99
Reply from 10.10.0.23: bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=99

Ping statistics for 10.10.0.42:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 2ms, Maximum = 5ms, Average = 3ms

Please advise what is the problem.

Four pings sent, four replies received. 2-5ms response time.

I don't see the problem.

Ditto. I don't see any inconsistencies.
Try running an extended ping, like 100 pings, and see what the range of response times is then.

>Both vlan are join together
Can you explain how? What kind of switches, what are you using for L3 routing between the two vlans?

The problem is I am getting different ip addresses instead of the standard 10.10.0.42 reply

D'oh! I didn't even see that. Same question, how do you have these two networks/vlans connected? This looks like proxy arp replies..

The problem had been solved, because some network card are 10baseT are not able to auto negotiate to 10mb full duplex and some faulty switch had been replaced.
