Problems with segments.

    My network is comprised of one subnet but several segments (as I understand

    The configuration is as follows:

    | Internet |
    | Pix 501 (Rtr) | --------boundary--------
    | INSIDE (192.168.0.*) Mask
    | Switch |
    | |
    +-+----+ +------+
    | PC A | | Hub |
    +------+ +-+----+----+
    | |
    +-+----+ +--+-----+
    | PC B | | C5100N |
    +------+ +--------+

    PC A and PC B actually stand for groups of PCs (so its not a one off).

    PC A can ping PC B (and vice versa)

    PC B can ping C5100N (and print to it)

    PC A CANNOT ping C5100N despite the fact that it can ping PC B.

    This makes me think that there is some funny behaviour with the printer
    (since it doesn't behave like all the other devices (PCs) that are connected
    to the Hub).

    I hope I haven't got the wrong definition of segment ( i think a segment is
    a single collision area). As I understand it PC A is in a different segment
    from PC B and the C5100N, but is in the same subnet.

    Can anyone think of a reason for this happening other than the printer being

    Does the printer have the same network address and the same subnet mask as
    the PC-A and PC-B devices?

    Printer's IP is
    501 Address is (internet gateway)

    PC A is (e.g. gateway
    PC B is (e.g. gateway

    All subnet masks are
