no, that is the correct subnet mask. what about route. just paste the output
from the "route" command and "route -n". and paste the info from "ifconfig"
as well, this is all done on the linux box. then on the windows box run from
the start_menu->run "winipcfg" and that will popup a box on the screen, you
may have to change the device to the network card and the do show details.
And send that info aswell, the other could be faulty cables have you tried
other cables.
