Fedora is the server that connects to the router which has the internet. also the the fedora connects to HUB that connects to the Ubuntu system as the LAN network.

On Fedora 2 network cards

for the internet network card that connects to internet "external"
- List item

        Ip address 192.168.2.4
        Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
        Gateway 192.168.2.1  
        DNS         192.168.2.1  <<< it is the same the Ip address of the router

Try setting IP packet forwarding by switching net.ipv4.ip_forward to 1 in /etc/sysctl.conf and then execute "sysctl -p"

Over the internet a personal network system operates as a computer network that employs independent Ip area. These particular IP addresses are usually put to use in household, place of work, and industry LAN-s, every time worldwide routable ip addresses don't seem to be obligatory, or usually are not readily available for the desired computer network products. Personal 192.168.2.1 Internet Protocol Address have been actually described to help holdup IPv4 ip exhaustion, however they are yet another option of the future era IPs, IPv6.

These kinds of ip addresses are characterised as personal since they're not internationally assigned, so this means they aren't allotted to any sort of company, and Internet protocol packages addressed by these can't be transferred in the open public Web. Virtually anyone might use all of these ip addresses without having authorization from your state Internet registry. In cases where an extremely personal computer network would need to hook up to the online world, it requires to apply a NA Translator terminal, or perhaps a proxies device.

Could I Reset my Wireless router Default Account information?

For a start, you can consider employing unique combos of passwords that can be found on-line. Frequently it's good enough to recognize who's the company, and in other instances you can try to look for default account information for a unique modem model.

The very last choice for you, basically functions serves as a component reset. Each individual modem contains a component reset control button. Simply just touch that switch and keep it for about 30 seconds and in a few minutes the wireless router will get back to its manufacturer configuration settings. Once you have succeeded in doing so test the default login details we certainly have already mentioned.
