I'm all out of ideas other than these guesses.
1. Try taking the DSL modem off the hub for a bit and retest
connectivity. All packets destined for the 192.168.1.0 network may be
going to 192.168.1.254 as the gateway, meaning that "e" is expecting the
dsl modem to route it. This would lead to:
2. Add static routes to each machine for the other ie:
route add -host 192.168.1.99 dev eth0
route add -host 192.168.1.10 dev eth0
I'm confused at this point, hopefully some other networking guru can
step in and solve this.
