OK, well I think this is probably a routing problem then. It probably has to
do with the point Ian made about your IP addresses. If the DSL modem insists
on being then you should change the subnet of your lan to
something else like Try this:

DSL modem -
inet facing NIC -
LAN facing NIC -
LAN Client -

Make sure masquerading and IP forwarding are up. You'll need to configure your
routing table too, setting your default gateway to I'm not
really a routing expert but if you get stuck I can show you a configuration
that works for me.

permanent obsolescence is approaching faster than I care to admit).
