    Here's the setup:
    Windows 2000 server running DHCP and DNS, got about 15 clients, using a linksys wireless broadband router with 4 port switch to connect to internet. Everything on same subnet, all addreses assigned by DHCP. Everybody on the network is fine except for two stations.
    One station is a wireless XP Tablet the other is a hard wired PC. The NIC MAC addresses are different and the IP addresses are different, however, when one of these two devices is working the other one is not.
    Any ideas? I'm usually a pretty good troubleshooter but this one has got me stumped.

    Have you tried to release/renew either of their IP addresses?

    yes, I even created a reservation on the server for the PC, and it retrieved that address but still could not ping gateway. I thought it was a problem with the linksys wireless broadband router, so I picked up a new wireless access point, disabled wireless on the linksys and ran it like that, but same problem.
    I'm going to try replacing the network card in the PC next.
