is it possible that two different technologies (adhoc and ethernet ) work at same time on Data Link Layer

Ad Hoc
Data-Link layer
Wireless networking
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 and its connected system ip address is wireless lancard address is and it connected wd other wireless system address now the question is can ping with (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 ( to let another wireless Ad Hoc client ( ping any upstream LAN client (192.168.1.x) through your dual-homed PC's wireless Ad Hoc connection ( 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 via and traffic sent to via

    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 and would be possible. By, Petko A.
