I am using RIP as the routing protocol.

Hi Rajib,Lets build-up a baseline:PC(10.1.3.2/24)<-->(10.1.3.1/24)Router(5.0.2.2/24)To ping from the PC to 10.1.3.1, its directly connected and needs no routing and should work, to ping from the PC to 5.0.2.2 needs the PC to have the router IP (10.1.3.1) as its default gateway.NOTE that the IP addressing must be consistent (any 2 interfaces sharing the same media must have IPs in the same subnet).Please comment on my input, and please share us your topology.I hope that i've been informative.HTH,Mohammed Mahmoud.

I DID not set up the default gateway - that was the problem. After setting up the default gateway, the problem had been resolved. thanks againg mohammed mahmoud. I really appreciate that. I changed the setup (connect the ethernet cable to a different router to test if there were any problem in the interface). now the way it is now:pc (5.0.3.2/24)----ethernet ---> router (5.0.3.1/24) serial interface (5.0.2.2/24). thanks again for solving this puzzle for me.

Hi Rajib,You are very welcomed again :)Keep up the nice work, and as a best practice use /30 IPs on serial interfaces as in this scenario you only need 2 host IPs on the serial link, and if you are using RIP make sure to use RIPv.2 in order not to go into any classful/discontigous problems.HTH,Mohammed Mahmoud.
