Yeah after reading this post, I will try to do a single NIC setup and have DHCP on the linuxmce box. I'll play around with it over the weekend when I have some time.

Per request, here is the layout.

I'll look into the single card setup.

Thank you all for your replies.

Should I have posted this in installation?

I am trying to setup my new linuxmce install but need some advice on the networking.

Here is the current situation. Upstairs is my modem, wireless router, gigabit switch, and fileserver. Downstairs is a wireless bridge and the only linuxmce box. The router is running DHCP and handing out ips in the 192.168.1 range. Currently I have the external NIC on the linuxmce machine plugged into the wireless bridge. The internal interface running DHCP (in 192.168.80) is not currently plugged into anything.

Now the linuxmce computer does not detect the fileserver, I assume because it doesn't search for devices on the external network. Now I'm not very enthused about having DHCP running on the linuxmce box because the only device that I want linuxmce to even connect to is the fileserver. In addition I only have the one wireless bridge connecting the upstairs and downstairs so I don't think that I would be able to use that link for both the internal connection to the fileserver and the external connection to the router.

The only way I can really see it working is to put the modem and router downstairs and move the bridge upstairs, which I guess I can do but it is really suboptimal.

Sorry for the long post, but does anyone have any suggestions?
