-depending on your brand and model- yes, Most routers will allow you to disable dhcp and act as a bridge or access point. This will allow your old router to just act as a normal network device with file sharing.

No, there's no way to do this. if you're using the modem as a bridge, then it can only be on one side of the router. It clearly must be on the WAN side because it has the connection to the WAN. Thus it cannot be on the LAN side. You need a switch.

you can add how many ip addresses you want: sudo ip address add 192.168.0.123/24 dev eth0 sudo ip address add 10.10.10.123/24 dev eth0 or simply shorten it up with: sudo ip a a 192.168.0.123/24 dev eth0 sudo ip a a 10.10.10.123/24 dev eth0 to remove ip address from interface sudo ip address del 192.168.0.123/24 dev eth0 sudo ip address del ...

Yes you can. Just as root type for example: ifconfig eth0:1 192.168.10.110 ifconfig eth0:2 10.10.10.10 to make those chanages permanent just edit /etc/network/interfaces

Connecting your cable modem directly to a PC is sometimes a necessary troubleshooting step - to ascertain whether problems are with your router or not, for example. Assuming this is a cable modem, and that it behaves like mine: Cable modems will only recognize a single device behind it - if you want to share the connection, a router does that and is ...

Is there any actual advantage to having more than one Ethernet cable running to the switch from the server? Yes. Adding extra cables from one server to its switch may be useful in two ways : extra bandwidth : if the traffic to your server is heavy, there may be a bottleneck here. Note that servers have limited capacity : a file server cannot send ...

Jim G may be right for some switches, except that many, especially linksys and Cisco, use spanning tree protocol to manage link redundancy and infinite loops, so it usually isn't a problem. As a network and systems admin you'll have to decide whether it's relevant for your situation. We have 5 servers, each handling a different subset of applications. We ...

The maximum possible bandwidth between two switches depends on the features (and possibly the configuration) of the switches. For switches that only speak Ethernet If either switch does not support LACP, there is no advantage in connecting more than one cable. If both switches do support LACP, you can get more bandwidth with more cables, up to some limit ...

You're only allowed one link between switches to prevent bridging loops. If your switch is managed and supports LAGs, you can group multiple ports into one logical link.

If you're dealing with VMWare try following: I added the following line to my .vmx file: ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000" reference: www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=47724

You cannot do that. In Windows and Unix (but not in Linux) you can have only one routing table, i.e., a set of instructions which specify how other pcs can be reached. Any routing table allows one and only one default gateway, and the interface through which the default gateway can be reached must be uniquely specified. Thus, when you connect through the ...

Because IP addresses are reachable from everywhere on the Internet, while Ethernet addresses are confined within the same network. IP uses routing – specific address prefixes, like 12.34.*.* or 56.7.89.*, are routed towards specific networks that "own" those addresses. These routes are distributed across the entire Internet using BGP. This works ...

If the physical address was "per network", then every device would require configuration to connect to each network, which would render auto-configuration impossible (At least DHCP can send the configuration to the physical address, knowing only one device will accept it; if you had no physical address configured, you could only broadcast new configurations, ...

I'm guessing what you want is an Internet connection for your Xbox? This is simple to achieve in windows using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)
