    I have a somewhat odd networking setup, I get the internet through a USB AT&T 3g card on my mac pro. To send it out I have internet sharing on, and send it out the ethernet port to a wireless router with its DCHP off. Before I would have a static IP with DCHP on my macpro and it would be great, wireless laptops can pick up the internet as well as a hardwired emac.

    Trouble is that I just moved out and the at&t usb card is being run on the emac with 10.4.11. Now using the same setup as before, the Vista laptop can not get internet, nothing has else has changed though. I can ping the emac on the vista machine and they talk. I can not ping the Vista machine on the emac though. I get this error in terminal:
    "PING 192.168.2.2 (192.168.2.2): 56 data bytes
    ping: sendto: No route to host
    ping: sendto: Host is down
    ping: sendto: Host is down "


    My emacs lan ip is 192.168.2.3
    Vista firewall is off
    Network discovery is on, as well as file sharing

    Any suggestions?

    What is the default gateway on the Vista machine? Do an ipconfig /all from the cmd prompt in Vista.
