competition between ethernet and wifi
« on: March 22, 2010, 04:04:44 AM »

Hi from a newbie,

Here is my problem, I have PC with a network card and a wifi card.
The ethernet goes for DNS 323 and the wifi for internet access via a router.
If I start the DNS 323, windows remove the router access and route all traffic to the ethernet.
So I can't access internet because it all goes to the DNS 323 !!!

Does someone has an idea to solve this problem ?
Thanks for your help.

Gillou

It would have been nice to see the routing table - you could transcribe it - but from the sound of it, you probably have both network cards configured to use the same network (192.168.x.y)

Do a static configuration of the wired connection and leave the Default Gateway and DNS Server addresses blank.  It should be on a different subnet as well to avoid any confusion.

You've already told us that you have a wireless router, so your NAS box should really be connected to the network there - not directly to your PC's wired network interface.  You could technically connect it directly to your PC and run separate networks between your wireless NIC and your wired NIC via static assignments as others have indicated, but that's silly.  This is how you'll need it configured if you want to utilize the FTP server anyway.

Are you suggesting  the ftp server cannot be used over a direct connection?  Because it can.

Well, having the NAS connected directly to the PC and then doing the FTP through the computer isn't exactly the easiest way to skin that cat!  Unless you bridge the connections, I don't see an easy way to actually use the FTP functionality in the NAS, you could simply run an FTP server on your computer if it's in the mix anyway.

Both of you are making an assumption - that he wants to use ftp over the internet.

He can if he so chooses connect his NAS to a single computer, and he can, if he so chooses do so with ftp - I fully agree that it's not the best way to use a NAS (and in fact would suggest an external USB, ESATA or firewire attached drive if that was the intent), but it can be done.

Well, yes, I was indeed making the assumption that the FTP access was external.  Sorry, but it makes no sense to me to access this via FTP on a direct connection.  ::)

Exactly!  If a directly connected external drive is all you're wanting, why not just buy a standard USB drive?  Let's not go down these rat holes of how things could be done.

At the same time - there is no point in making misleading statements - which is the reason I questioned it.
