Full Version: D-link 604 Broadband Router

U-235
I have a D-Link 604 Ethernet Broadband router that I wish to use in order to connect both my Windows XP pro and Linux Fedora Core 3 boxes to the internet. The Windows box connects just fine through the router, but the linux box does not. I have the linux box set up to obtain network connection info via DHCP from the router, which is what my windows box does. I have had this problem in the past, but I was able to connect to the internet by bypassing the router. I, therefore, know it is the router causing the problem. Is there any way to cofigure the router so it gets along with linux?

Give the Linux box a ststic IP,. and then set the gateway address to the IP address of the router. If you only have two boxes, then it might be easier just to turn DHCP off at the router, and configure them both manually

DHCP disabled on router, assigned Linux box static IP. Windows box maintains same IP. The windows box, obviously, is still able to connect to the internet, as for the linux box:
[root@localhost ~]# ping 192.168.0.1 //the router
From 192.168.0.101 icmp_seq=0 Destination Host Unreachable
.

Can you ping the Windows Box?

No, same error message.

Inj that case, it sounds like your Linux box doesnt actually have a working network connection. First of all, check that you have the cable pluggewd into the right NIC (I have dsone that before...)

If it still doesnt work, open the Fedora Network Coonfig utitility (system-config-network) and see what it says about the connection. It might be that the device is being started at boot, in which case you jsut need to turn it on. If there is another problem, the utility should tell you when you try and enable the device. If you are still none the wiser, have a look at the kernel log by using the following command:

CODE
sudo tail -f /var/log/messages


Hopefully there will be some information buried somewhere in your box...
