having been connected to our shiney telstra cable tinternet connection for 3 months now, we are still unable to share our bredband (thats Swedish for Broadband) round the Flat.

1st of all we tried a Dlink DIR 120 and failed after 3 geeks tried.

We are currently on a netgear rp614 which seems to allow one computer to access the outside world (typing from it currently) and I can ping the other computer on the router. The second computer can get a ip address via dhcp and ping the router but not the 1st computer or get to the outside world.
We've given it the lastest firmware and well changed mac address's and refreshed ip addresses and reset the router but the second computer just does not want to leave the comfort of the rp614!

Ideas are welcome, or just bring round the sledge hammer to send the netgear to silcon heaven.

Possibly a firewall issue on that problem machine (hence why you can't ping it) or it's a faulty router.

Try disabling the firewall (or uninstalling if it's anything from the Norton range) or a different router if you can borrow one temporarily.

There is only a window's firewall and it happens if you plug either computer in second. Spoken to a co worker who has suggested looking at the routing of the computer using the "route print" command and delete all the routes to see if that helps.
