Should I Bridge?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Zmx1ZmZ5IHRoZSB3b25kZXIga2l0dGVu?=, Jul 21, 2005.

  1. I have two pc's one is hard wired to a linksys wireless broadband router and
    the other one get's it's connection via a linksys wireless usb connection
    from the router which is connected to the internet via a sprint broadband
    modem. I connected an ethernet cable from the NIC on the pc that is using
    the wireless USB for it's internet connection to a network printer/copier/fax
    machine and gave it a static ip address.
    I enabled the NIC on the pc gave it a static ip so it could print. It
    prints fine but I loose wireless connectivity. I tried bridging the wired
    and wireless and it works but sometimes i loose the internet connection, with
    a msg "there is IP conflict with another device". Is it possible to make
    this work, I also want to install another wireless usb device on the other
    computer to access the printer. Is there an alternate configuration that
    would work better for this. Thanks
    Fluffy

    well sounds like another computer on your network has the same ip, you
    should try to trace that down and change it. if your wireless network is
    unsecured the ip could be on a "wi-fi intruder" if this is the case, secure
    your network.
