I couldn't cut and paste since while I have the LinuxMCE as the router I have no internet.
again here is how I have it set up: (not working)
Internet --> eth0 on LinuxMCE Core (there was no modem for fios it was their power supplies) (It goes from ONT out side to power boxes to a RJ45 connection)
eth1 --> switch --> LAN
I did ctrl+Alt F2 to get a login and did "sudo ifconfig |more"
I entered my password and it gave me:
eth0 192.168.80.1 255.255.255.0
eth1 192.168.80.254 255.255.255.0
I had my Mint box running which will be my MD. I ran the same command and got:
Not sure how to look up my address on the mac pro I am typing this on.
I am not sure if this is an PPOe problem. I turned the DCHP server off on my router each time so I am pretty sure its not a DCHP conflict.
I have the FIOS router connected to the switch via port 1.
I turned on my laptop runnign XP and clicked run --> "cmd" --> "ipconfig" and got the address 192.168.80.152.
Should I change the setup to:
Internet --> Fios Router (DCHP off) -->Linuxmce eth0
eth 1 --> switch --> LAN
Don't know if this matters or not but I wanted to stay away from directly going through the FIOS router since its 10/100 and mostly everything else on the network is 10/100/1000. Not sure if this would cause a bottle neck???
It seems like the LinuxMCE DCHP server is working. It just looks like PPOe is not working.
