We're a small humanitarian organization, with an HQ of about 15 people. I have little networking experience, and have been tasked with the imminent set-up of our network as we move from within a larger institution (a hospital) to our own offices.

Why is it that whenever I put a dialup profile in Control Panel > Network, Windows sees it as an opportunity to pop up a dialup connection panel whenever (1) I try to connect to a bad domain name or the server isn't responding and (2) I'm already on a DSL connection? This is getting annoying. I have Win2K.

I like to pretend that I'm a big networking wiz, but in reality, I don't even have the wits to play one on TV. Either way, I've been looking for something a little more robust in the router department for my home network, and I think I've found it with the Linksys WRT54G + DD-WRT firmware (v23, 12/25/05 release). And here's where the fun begins - Getting it to manage my DSL connection. [more inside]
1990sGamingFilter: I'm trying to set up some LAN gaming with some old IPX-dependent games (primarily WarCraft II: TOD). I've installed the IPX protocol under my network connection, but the game still can't find the network. I'm using a D-Link DI-524 wireless router, which I suspect does not support IPX natively. Is there an emulator or something I can use?

I have a Wireless Ethernet bridge which I have connected to a PC via an ethernet cross-over cable. This is working fine in terms of allowing access to the wireless network I can browse the net from the PC etc. with no problem. The problem comes when I try to ping this PC behind the wireless bridge from another PC. My other PC's on the network simply refuse to see it - all PC's are connected to the same wireless network and have no problem seeing each other except the PC connected via the wireless ethernet bridge. All PC's are in the same Windows XP workgroup and indeed in the workgroup the bridged PC can be seen in the network neighborhood by all the other PC's with no problems but cannot ping it or access it via TCP/IP etc. All PC's are in the same subnet - mask is 255.255.255.0. All PC's are configured to have the default gateway of the Router - 192.168.0.1. All IP Addresses are static as well. What am I doing wrong here or will the wireless bridge effectively hide the second PC from any other PC's on the network - clearly not an acceptable situation. I'm 99% certain this is not a firewall issue either as the second PC can see other PC's on the network with ease. I'm going slowly mad over this so any help gratefully received. TIA, Matt
Wireless troubles- I have a Belkin wireless router at home hooked up to a cable connection. Most of the time the system works great, but every couple of hours (approximately-it's unpredictable) the network will just disappear; no internet connection, and the network is not visible in my internet connect utility. This happens with my Mac Powerbook as well as my wife's PC. The connection returns after a while- maybe 5-10 minutes or so. Sometimes I try unplugging then re-plugging in the cable modem and the router. This seems to work sometimes, but sometimes not. How can I fix this? [more inside]
