1) Full format of HDD
2) Full Ubuntu 6.10 install
3) Installed all updates
4) Installed LinuxMCE
As soon as LinuxMCE starts up I, my network breaks. Windows boxes, linux boxes- it doesn't matter, can see the network but are unable to connect (either wirelessly or via RJ-45). If I physically disconnect the RJ-45 cable from the LinuxMCE box and wait about an hour the network is back to normal- all computers can connect. Sometimes, if I leave the LinuxMCE box connected long enough when the other computers try to access the internet all URLs are redirect to the LinuxMCE admin login page.
I have two Belkin F5D7230-4 wireless routers setup as WDS (wireless bridging). Access is controlled via MAC address- no WPA/WEP etc. I've done full formats on two different machines with and without the core and with and without the dhcp server, and I've tried turning off DHCP as suggested here: http://forum.linuxmce.com/index.php?topic=1298.0
For now, I just want to be able to connect my LinuxMCE box to the network without it messing up the other computers- keeping my Belkin routers as the DHCP server. Any ideas? Suggestions?
Thanks in advance-
