hey guys, i have a desktop running 8.04 that has a wireless card and an ethernet port. I share the internet connection between to my laptop via the ethernet port and crossover cable.

I recently built a desktop out of some used parts, i installed hardy but cannot get internet connectivity. I have the card configured just the same as my laptop (same ip and gateway). this gives me perfect access between the two desktops (i can ssh from the recently built one to the one sharing the internet). but i can't connect to the internet . why would this be?

oh, and i just tested my laptop and it can access the internet properly.
