STILL NOT WORKING

Hi again Bruce,

192.168.1.254 is the address  of the DHCP server seen from ipconfig /all on XP and is the address of eth1 on DL from ifconfig.
Granted, I'd expect something with a 0 as the third number, but thats what DL gives me. I'd thought it simply resulted from the
initial boot when 192.168.0 was from the router XP <--> DL <--> router <--> cable modem. However, I rebooted DL with simply
XP <--> DL <--> cable modem and still got 192.168.1.254

In case it is of interest, the lines from XP ipconfig /all

It looks like the default gateway on XP is set incorrectly.
(s/b 192.168.1.254)  Double check your DL DHCP settings.
While you're there, double check the DNS servers too.
Also, from a DOS command line prompt:  ipconfig /all
