    So the IP isnt even in the arp cache....
    /me is stumped at the moment, and will take another look in the morning

    Actually, can you post the output of
    Code:
    route -n
    Since there are two interfaces, you need a route so that the system knows what interface to go out of

    Below command should add the route on the computer
    Code:
    sudo ip route add 192.168.10.0/24 dev eth0
