I am trying the latest trial version of KWF 6.0.11 on a very simple setup:

1 pc with a WiFi card and an Ethernet card (I make a VPN connection to Interntet through this one). WiFi card is connected through an Access Point with a laptop.

Just before KWF installation I've tested the following:

1. Configured the WiFi card on the PC with IP 192.168.0.1, Subnet 255.255.255.0
2. Configured Laptop with IP 192.168.0.2, Subnet 255.255.255.0.
3. Tried to ping PC from Laptop -- everything works, tried to ping Laptop from the PC -- the ping works this way too.

Then I install KWF and suddenly this setup stops working. PC doesn't see the Laptop and vs. What's even more interesting -- the same situation remains after I stop KWF service completely (but keep it installed) -- both machines still don't see each other.

After I uninstall KWF everything starts to magically work again. So it seems that traffic rules or anything like this in KWF doesn't have anything to do with this, since I tried to disable the Engine completely and this didn't help.

What can cause this problem? It seems that KWF installs something that prevents my WiFi network from normal work.

PS. I've even gone an extra mile, installed Ethereal and tried to capture the packets on the Wifi card on the PC. When I do "ping 192.168.0.1" on the laptop I can clearly see the packets coming to PC with requests to tell where is 192.168.0.1, but PC doesn't reply on them.

I'm completely puzzled.

For different interface, you need different subnet IP.
Try this:
LAN: 192.168.0.1 Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Wifi: 192.168.1.1 Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Make sure both network adaptors are listed in 'INTERFACE' branch. It should work.

Hope it helps =)
