I have bought a new D-link Wi-Fi modem recently, and I have connected one Linux system through LAN and another system through Wi-Fi. I can't ping the host which is connected to the LAN from the Wi-Fi host, but if I connect both to LAN, that works fine. What settings do I need to change?
- I am trying using IP addresses.
Please find the IP information below. I got this from the
ifconfigcommand, by connecting both the LAN and Wi-Fi at the same time.

I am using DHCP only (not static).
nmapis not showing the host 192.168.1.33. :(

ifconfigoutput from the host that fails when connected by WiFi? Your
nmpapoutput shows that the wifi IP (192.168.1.34) is found. You seem to expect it to find 33, which machine is that?
