Are you saying it does work? Are you saying that perhaps you have other
hosts on your network use this same setup successfully?
I have 4 other laptops on this AP that all have internet connectivity (2
winxp and 2 win2k pro).
All configured with the gateway as 192.168.1.254 (the BS router)
Any ping except to 192.168.1.12 (manually assigned) and 127.0.0.1 and
localhost result in either "host is down" or a name resolve issue, ie cannot
Additionally EricBSD (manually assigned name to box) returns with a cannot
resolve host as well.
I will post the result of the below shortly.
# ifconfig -a
# netstat -rn
# ping ip.of.linksys
# ping ip.of.bellsouth
# arp -a
