Wireless Router to Wired Router...

I have a DSL connection and the modem creates two networkds, a wired and a wireless. I have a wired computer and another onw accessing the wireless network. if both are wired I can ftp between them but I do not know how to configure the route so I can ftp between "wired" to "wireless". I have tried

sudo route add gw 192.168.254.254 which is the router of the wired network but I get "unknown host" although route -n tells me that the network 192.168.254.0 exists

  1. Are they on the same subnet ?
  2. How can I verify this (if both are on the same subnet)?

    Here you are ifconfig output of the desktop (wired) and later dow at the wireless

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:27:0e:34:75:89

    and the output of ifconfig at wireless

    Does is tell you something? My guess is that the answer is "no" to your question.

  3. Solved: sudo ifconfig eth0 down - eth0 was not actual at the wireless connected computer. After putting it down I was able to use its wireless IP.

    But, I have to do this everytime. Annoying!
