On my Windows configuration, I use a Wifi to connect to the interwebs:
Also on my Windows configuration, I have a NAS and a second computer with Ubuntu connected via a switch on my ethernet port:
192.168.1.88 (NAS) 192.168.1.214 (Computer)
It is now possible to surf, but also to connect to the NAS via IP or name. Also I do have configured a bridge in Windows to allow the Ubuntu PC to connect to the Internet. This all works fine.
BUT if I use my Wifi Stick on the Ubuntu PC (to surf) and the ethernet switch to connect the Ubuntu PC to the NAS (same as Windows config), I can't ping or find the NAS.
I tried already to add a route
route add -host 192.168.1.88 dev eth0
but this didn't help.
Why is this? Where do I have to configure something or change properties to make this work?
