    I was trying Traceroute to see if it might explain why a ping to the 
laptop fails. I do ifconfig on the laptop to get it's ip.

    Still do not understand how this setup fails. I have 2 routers. The 
second router gets Internet from the first. Right now the DSL-router is 
192.168.0.x and the Belkin Router is 192.168.1.x wired and 192.168.2.x 
from the WiFi port. Any computer on any port will get fine two way 
Internet from the DSL. But it is one way from the DSL-router to the 
Belkin router. A computer on the Belkin can ping a computer on the 
DSL-router but not the other way. It's an odd problem. I expect the 
Belkin router is not really a router.
