So when you try to ping 192.168.2.5, the packet is sent to the D-link router, because that is the default route, and the machines only know the route for the 192.168.1.0/24 network, and the default route. As I posted in another message, you may be able to add a route to the D-link router so it know to use the Linux box as the route to the 192.168.2.0/24 network. If not, then you have to add the route to the other machines on the 192.168.1.0/24 network. Mikkel -- A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
