If I'm understanding you you're saying that ATT's router having an
address of 192.168.1.254 on eth0 while the Linux box(play), Win2k(s40)
and my router have addresses 192.168.1.1,2&3 on eth1 is the root of
the problem. Since ATT's router's address is immutable I either need
to reconfigure 2 computers and a router to a different net,
192.168.2.0 or 10.0.0.0, for instance or learn to build bridges.

Is my understanding correct?

Thanks,
Mike
