No, first thing I did was make sure that was off. Never had it enabled
truthfully, but  killed it again before the first post to make sure I
wasn't crazy.

Or does the router have a firewall?  Does the router do NAT?  Time to
step 
through all the router settings, I think.  My strategy in a case like
this is 
to start a reply to the thread, listing absolutely everything - it
usually 
doesn't get sent, because the listing process makes me pay attention to 
something that I would otherwise have overlooked.

Ok, got it, for some reason the Linux box was looking at the wrong
device as a gateway. I have no clue why, everything I set in the various
files that would seem to care had 192.168.1.1 as the gateway, about half
the time it seems the Linux box was trying to use 192.168.1.2 as a
gateway. There was (now removed) a device on that address. Once removed
all works. I am not even going to try and guess why the Linux box was
trying to use the wrong device, when removed with no other changes from
me, it works. Go figure and remember the Windoze boxes never had an
issue.

Thank you all for the suggestions and assistance!!!
