Yes, and what he described is right, most always.  "Connected
together" taken loosely.  it just means they're both on the same
broadcast domain (or sometimes happens with bridging).  almost always,
at least.  that or you have a machine configured for the wrong IP
subnet on the wrong interface, but that's much less likely.

it's basically just a warning message, "hey, this looks like your
network is screwed up, you probably want to check this out".
