I'm using a D-Link DSL-G604T DSL Hub and Modem.
I have two PC's (and others, but this will do for the excercise) one running XP Pro, the other Home. Both PC's can communicate with the net. Both PCs can see one another but cannot communicate unless I shut down my Firewall (ZoneAlarm free).
The problem is: If I allow the server to supply IP address, all works well with the Internet.
If I manually assign an IP address, so that I can permit those addresses through ZA, it all falls in a heap as my ISP wants to assign the IP address.
I'm sure that there must be some setting in the Hub that allows for dynamic IP for my ISP, but Static Addresses for my home network. What an I missing?
Thanks Simon, I will try just that. I was confusing LAN and WAN, methinks.
I ended up changing my default IP range and all is well, thank you sir!
You set my thinking straight! I rarely delve into the realms of networking, and had not had any experience with using DSL and Networking before.All my previous experience had been with dial up and no shared Internet connection.
