 Subject:  m0n0wall complains about ARP conflicts?
 Date:  Thu, 02 Dec 2004 09:30:55 +1300
I changed the wireless card in my m0n0wall 1.1 box from a dlink 500 to a
dlink 650, then rebooted.
A couple of days later I notice this weirdness in syslog:

Dec 1 12:59:29 /kernel: arp: 00:60:08:35:bb:95 is using my IP address
10.28.1.1!
Dec 1 12:59:29 /kernel: arp: 00:05:5d:25:29:83 is using my IP address
10.28.1.1!

Now, arp on an internal linux box claims:
Address                  HWtype  HWaddress           Flags Mask     Iface
m0n0wall.criggie.dyndns  ether   00:60:08:35:BB:95   C              eth0

An interesting symptom - the windows XP box on the lan can connect to
m0n0wall's IP but not the hostname.  A linux box can connect to both the IP
and the hostname.

Here's the sections from the m0n0wall's interfaces page:
WAN interface
Status up
MAC address 00:60:97:dd:95:8d
IP address 202.999.999.999
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0

  (this wireless link isn't used for anything yet.)

CLUG horse interface
Status up
MAC address 00:60:08:a1:12:11
IP address 192.168.1.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0

  (this is a ghetto-hosted machine on its own interface)

Garage interface
Status up
MAC address 00:60:08:a1:12:3e
Media 100baseTX <full-duplex>
 (this is bridged with lan)


What has happened?  Do I have a corrupt arp table somewhere?  Did the change
of wireless NIC do this (seems doubtful.)
