Just so I understand this right,...
Because I've been messing around with MythTV settings, playback configuration user setting, etc., before getting to the network configuration...
Q: Which nic should the Internet connection be on, and which should the internal network be on,... ? (onboard versus card)
Q: And can LinuxMCE be connected to a router which Does DHCP for any direct connectly devices?
(Specifically, I have a Micsaverde Vera v.1, and my Iconia A500 tablet does not like my other wireless router)
... and have LinuxMCE do DHCP for anything connected to IT for internet and internal cross talk?
I know my Linksys WRT54GS running Gargoyle can be set to allow for other DHCP connections,... and turn off DHCP.
I don't know how easily the Vera can be configured to do the same.
Until I get a chance to reconfigure the network, Vera connects first, then the other router to it, and currently then to all other machines including my LinuxMCE Core.
I briefly tried; Cable modem to LinuxMCE Core to Vera to Linksys, but everything lost its Internet connection but the Core (The Vera may have been running DHCP, but the Linksys had it turned off).
I intend to move my Gargoyle-powered router inside, with LinuxMCE sitting between the Vera and the Linksys. So, it would be; Cable Modem to Vera to LinuxMCE Core to Linksys/Gargoyle router (with DHCP turned off) to everything else.
Will the above work,... or do I have to get more aggressive with the setup of the Vera?
