raph, "native X server"? What about a Quartz version? (and/or libart/X11)

Gah. Does anyone else here hate D-Link? I have a D-Link DWL-122 USB compact wireless thing in an iMac that gives grief to two other devices on my Ad-Hoc wireless net:

1. a P4 running WinXP with a D-Link DWL-G520B PCI card can't access Samba shares on the iMac or surf reliably (the iMac is gateway); can't ftp either.

2. a P3 laptop running Linux can't do certain transfers (http, nfs) with the iMac over wireless. Funnily enough, ssh and ping work perfectly.

Hmm...wonder if it's MTU/MRU related.

Gah. I think the next thing is to swap the D-Link USB for a Linksys USB.

(update) Ankh, NAT is not involved. MTU changes do not help... I think I am dealing with a faulty D-Link USB wireless adapter. Will probably buy a Linksys wireless router tomorrow (only $60 approx!) and solve it that way...
