This is your problem.

    Do your net card and hub both have link lights?


i am hooking the client directly into the internal nic on the gateway, so n=
o hub.  i've verified that both nics on the gateway work - did this by conf=
iguring xl1 as the primary nic, and it worked.
You can't do this.
You _must_ use a crossover cable to connect 2 NICs directly together.
You need to use a hub or switch to use straight-through ethernet cables.
