oops, mistype, that should've been 4.9-stable instead of 4.0...
I'm having problems getting a FreeBSD machine and a Linksys
WRT54G talking with each other.
dc0 - "public" to outside Internet
dc1 - internal 192.168.0.1/24, connects to a hub
dc2 - internal 192.168.1.100/24, connects to a switched LAN port on the router
dc3 - currently unused
OS: FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE as of 10 December 2003
Running natd between dc0 & dc1 (& that works fine)
dc0 gets its IP address, etc., via DHCP/dhclient.
dc1 is configured statically & machines connected on that subnet work fine.
dc2 should get its ip address, etc. from a Linksys WRT54G,
but won't; syslog says "address in use," so I configured it "manually"
with ifconfig, to 192.168.1.100/24.
dc2 has a Linksys WRT54G on it, & thus far, that box refuses
to talk (not even icmp) with the fbsd machine, even if I set
its ip-address & that of dc2 manually. (The Linksys
defaults to running a dhcp server & its factory-supplied
ip-address is 192.168.1.1 & it "tries" to setup the first
interface talking to it to be 192.168.1.100). The router
works fine when connecting another machine (running Windows
2000) to it.
$ ping -c3 192.168.0.2 ## this is a Windows2000 box on the dc1 network

Any ideas on getting this thing to work? It seems to work
fine when connected to a Windows2000 machine.
Yes, I've tried other interfaces & cables, etc, so I'm
confident the hardware is fine. :)
Idea(s) on further troubleshooting/fixing this?
FAQs/documentation pointers are quite welcome. :)
