PostPosted: Sat Jul 23, 2005 5:24 am    Post subject: RT31P2 Behind Wireless Network NOW With A Linux Box Reply with quote Back to top

I know that I've posted about this before, but recently I formatted my old PC running XP and installed Linux on that box. It was working fine until I wanted to log in to the RT31P2 to do some port forwarding.

Then all hell broke loose.

Explanation of Network:

RT31P2 -> PC running XP Pro -> Wireless Connection to Internet

The RT31P2 is connected correctly as follows:

Port 1: PC running XP Pro that connects to the internet wirelessly
Port 2: PC running Linux
Port 3: Loopback to WAN port of RT31P2

I have disabled NAT and Dynamic Routing on the RT31P2. I set a static IP in Linux that falls within the port range assigned by the RT31P2. I set the IP address of the Linux box to DMZ in the RT31P2..

All three ports have an IP assigned in the DHCP table of the RT31P2. The RT31P2 has a static IP assigned to it, and the Default Gateway and DNS #1 are set to the IP address for the "Network Bridge" (XP Pro creates a Network Bridge that controls all traffic connecting thru the XP Pro's connection to the internet).

The Problem:

I am able to make and receive calls, but the Linux box cannot connect to the internet. What am I forgetting to do here? Thanks all.

Some parts of that setup just look really random and screwy. You can't seem to decide whether the RT31P2 is a client or a router. If the XP computer is just bridging, and NAT is disabled on the RT31P2, then where does the NATing actually occur? What exactly is that "wireless connection to the Internet"? does it provide you with more than one IP address?

It's actually both, and with XP it worked fine. It worked fine with Linux before I made the decision to log in and change something, then I had to reset to factory default and the settings that worked that I alluded to in this thread from months ago don't seem to stick.

Are all of your devices getting IP addresses assigned directly from your neighbor's wireless router? If that's the case, then you shouldn't need DHCP at all on the RT31P2. So, maybe your problem is conflicting DHCP servers.

My neighbor's wireless connection is only assigning one IP address, the IP address for the Windows XP box.

It goes like this:


Code:
Neighbor's wireless --> My XP box
                                           |
                                           |
                                     Network Bridge
                                           |
                                           |
                                        RT31P2
                                           |
                                           |--------WAN port Loop
                                         / | \
                                       /   |   \
                                     /     |     \
                                Loop   |       XP

Sounds like you either need to:

1) Connect the WAN of the router to the bridge and your bottom clients to the LAN ports and lose the loopback

2) Disable the DHCP on the router and let all the other devices get their IP addresses from whatever is assigning it to the WAN port of the router

Your information seems to be inconsistent... on the XP box, are you using a network bridge, or Internet Connection Sharing?

If you use a bridge, then each of your devices needs an IP from your neighbor. If you use ICS, then only the XP box needs an IP, and the other devices are on a separate subnet.

It uses the Netowrk Bridge. The XP has dual networking (though I am only using one Ethernet port so as not to confuse XP about the Wireless Card Connection being the connection to the internet), so the network bridge is assigned an IP of 192.168.0.1 and everything that connects thru that bridge uses that IP on the XP local machine. It obtains its internet IP address from the Wireless Router.

So like this:

Wiireless Connection: 192.168.122.xxx
Network Bridge: 192.168.0.1


The RT31P2 is connected to the Network Bridge on XP. I can make and receive calls fine, I just can't access the internet on the Linux box plugged into Port 2 of the Rt31P2,

I don't think that's how a bridge is supposed to work... and what's the WAN IP of the RT31P2?

Edit: I just found this:
"The network bridge manages your LAN segments and creates a single subnet for the entire network. There is no configuration required, and you do not need purchase additional hardware such as routers or bridges. IP addressing, address allocation, and name resolution is highly simplified in a single subnet IP network."

To sum it up, you're doing something really weird.

It's really not that weird. I am using the RT31P2 behind a PC running XP that connects to the internet through a wireless signal.

Because my XP box has dual networking capability, I can connect to the internet using wireless THEN bridge that connection to all other connections on the machine.

Think of it like this:

Code:

internet ----- wireless-g router ----- my xp box
                                              |
                                              |
                                            RT31P2
                                             |
                                             |
                                          Linux Box


you can see where the RT31P2 is in the configuration. As I said, I am connecting to Vonage, but Linux is not connecting to the internet. Is it possibly a setting on my Linux box that is not working or something in the RT31P2 that is not communicating with the Linux box properly?
