prowlerSam440ep networking strangeness.20101214 16:37
Came across an interesting problem with my Sam440ep the other day and was wondering if anyone may know anything about it.

Some background on the setup, I have a Linux server setup in my garage which I export an NFS mount from and a few other bits and pieces (Web server, FTP server etc) BUT to get to it I use a wireless bridge which connects to a wiresless access point. All the other computers in the house can access the Linux server except for the Sam440ep. I thought it may have been a problem with Roadshow so I booted the Sam up into Linux but no, even under Linux it can not access the server so I am guessing it may be more a hardware related limitation.

I can ping and get to the wireless access point in the house but unable to get to the remote end of the bridge.

I did set the bridge up in a bit of a hurry so there may be some strangeness there as well.

I can't see how it could be a hardware. Certainly never heard of such a problem before. I'd be more inclined to suspect the network configuration itself.

What happens if you plug a Linux PC in using the same network socket as the Sam440?

TBH, if the Sam is able to ping the access point upstream in the network, I fail to see how this can be a hardware fault with the Sam.

As ChrisH says, I'd be tempted to replace it with another machine using the same IP address (assuming you are using static addresses).

I had already tried connecting two different machines to the same point the Sam was plugged into as well as trying a different switch with the same result each time.

The Sam is not getting to the remote end. I have a wireless access point in the house, where the Sam is which the Sam can ping BUT the wireless bridge at the other end of the connection which is in the garage it can not ping but everything else in the house can which is why I thought I would ask if anyone had seen or heard anything about the Sam440ep which might have helped.
