Stupid Crossover Cable Question
Stupid Crossover Cable Question –
Hey, I was wondering if I could get some help with Inlink and Pukklink. I've got it working just fine on my system at home, and here's my setup:
Computer ------- Router --------- PS2
(with all straight-through patch cables)
Everything works just fine, using the default IP settings.
However, I run into a lot of problems getting a Pukklink setup to work at my friend's house. He's got kind of an interesting setup. I'm trying to get it to connect to his XP laptop, which has a standard ethernet port, but is also on his wireless network.
1) I think I've got the crossover cable crimped properly, like this, right?
1 -> 3
2 -> 6
3 -> 1
6 -> 2
2) I've tried getting it to connect after disabling the wireless network card, just to be sure that there weren't any IP conflicts.
3) It's the same PS2, same network adapter, same versions of Pukklink and InLink that I've used successfully at home.
Could someone tell me what IP addresses I should use in the config to get things working smoothly? What IP addys should I be looking at in WinXP's ipconfig?
Thanks a million for any help.
(PS, Yeah, I know this place has a Search Button. )
well first thing to look at is if he is using a DNS server... what hardware is he using for his wireless set up? computer to computer wireless or is he using a wireless gateway/hub..
neways look in his computer's IP config for his wirless adapter,, have a look at the IP address.. if it has a number there, then he's not using a DNS server.. look at the first set of didgits.. it's either gonna be 192.168.blah.blah or 10.1.blah (from mrmory)
pretty much on your ps2, set the ip to something high (192.168.0.200 or 10.0.1.240) for example..
remember you have to keep all three bits of the ip address the same..
so if his laptop is 192.168.0.10
you can select anything from 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.0.255
don't change the first 3.
use his wireless hub and wireless adapter
(simply change the ip on your ps2, then plug it into his wireless hub)
use the built in eth port and use a cross over cable
in which case, ps2 ip 192.168.0.40
laptop eth adapter ip to 192.168.0.50
