supose we hv 3 systems. centerlised system hv 2 lancards. one PCI card of realtek and second wireless of linksys. PCI card ip address is 192.168.1.1 and its connected system ip address is 192.168.1.2. wireless lancard address is 172.168.15.1 and it connected wd other wireless system address 172.168.15.2. now the question is can 192.168.1.2 ping with 172.168.15.2. (using routing and remote access) can ethernet and adhoc work togeather on data link layer

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I hink that it is posible if you have configured the reouting correctly.

    There shouldnt be any issues with them working together on the data link layer. I would recommend after you get the rerouting setup you can test the settings. Just set your DNS to circumvent the primary connection and use the backup to make sure both can be accessed at the same time. Unless you have load balancing equipment they won't rely on each other for a shared connection, there would be a primary and secondary so if one communication path goes down the other should pickup.

    The easiest way to accomplish this is to enable Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) on one of the two connections - just check the ICS box on the Connection Properties/Advanced panel. For example, enable Internet Connection Sharing on your Ethernet (192.168.1.1) to let another wireless Ad Hoc client (172.168.15.2) ping any upstream LAN client (192.168.1.x) through your dual-homed PC's wireless Ad Hoc connection (172.168.15.1). ICS is best used where you want one-way routing (as with a shared Internet connection). If you want bidirectional routing, enable RRAS and configure routes to relay traffic sent to 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 via 192.168.1.1 and traffic sent to 172.168.15.0/255.255.255.0 via 172.168.15.1.

    In fact, bringing up an interface with correctly set IP, broadcast and netmask "automagically" will set a route to network defined by the broadcast and netmask to go through this interface. If you activate IP forwarding (routing) between interfaces then any communications - ping included - between 192.168.1.2 and 172.168.15.2 would be possible. By, Petko A.
