192.168.42.129

laptop has address
192.168.43.78
255.255.255.0

What device has the 192.168.43.1 and 192.168.42.129 addresses.

If this is the same devices as I suspect it will respond to any of its addresses on any of its ports BUT unless it is a device designed to be a router it will not actually pass and packets between the 2 interface it will only terminate the packets on itself

It can't possibly work and if it could, it would be a most unsecure network. Why can you not simply connect by an ethernet cable for simple networking purposes using SAMBA and then go on to share the Windows system's Internet connection.
