Re: (Help)Using Ubuntu for internet connection sharing DHCP not working
In addition to Firestarter install a DHCP GUI called GDHCPD to configure your scopes getaways and DNS info its easy to use and has sufficient help. Thats what I use and it works fine with ubuntu, Windows clients and have not tried Mac clients.

*if u misconfigure routers ip the following happens*
Now my problem is it ubuntu clients dont connect to the internet through my server even though windows clients work perfectly. A few points to note about my situation.
1 - the ubuntu clients get the ip address, DNS and getaway address successfully so I dhcp is passing and assigning the configurations. But cant figure out why they dont connect to the internet.
2 - the ubuntu clients can connect in connected directly to my router
3 - My server is hardy 64 bit using GDHCPD firestarter and webmin
4 - Am using two NIC one for internet and one for LAN
5 - my switch is a netgear four port wireless router, i have disabled its dhcp and router functions. Wireless clients work fine, wireless access internet using ubuntu not tested.
