This is a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router with RangeBooster.
2 WIndowsXP clients connected to it via wireless can ping each other ok. However it cannot ping the WindowsXP client that is plugged in directly to router via CAT5 cable.
From my findings I noticed when I logged on the router that it only maintains clients connected to it via wireless in the DHCP Client Table. So as you might expect the cabled WindowsXP pc can ping the other wireless pc. But the wireless pc cannot ping to the cabled pc because it is missing in the table.
Router firmware is on the latest available from Linksys/Cisco. Firmware Version: 1.01, Nov 11, 2005.
Is there a way to allow pc connected directly by cable to the router to be in the DHCP client table, this way all the computers on my network can actually talk to each other?
I've also considered open source alternatives such as http://www.wrtrouters.com
as there might be more features but new to this.
