Bridging NetGear N600 Wireless to Ethernet and Workgroup help?........


Actiontec M1000 Modem w/Wireless Adapter (
OS1: Vista Ultimate SP2: W/NetGear N600 Wireless, Intel 82567V Gigabit (no IP due to bridge), Work group “DevOneSoft”
Dynex Router (
OS2: openSUSE 12.1 w/RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit (, Work group “DevOneSoft”, Samba
I was succesfful in bridging the adapters and both OS can connect to the internet, but here are my problems:

  1. How can I get the workgroup to see each other so I can access files?
  2. Both computers have webservers and I can ping, access the webserver only from OS2

Does anyone have a mixed network like this with a single workgroup?
