Hi, I setup most networks the same, as far as I know i'm correct in this. I assign each PC a IP in the range of 192.168.1.*, mask .The ADSL router is also one of these IP's (For example and the mysql linux server is another IP in the same range (For example All PC's i set the DNS's to the ones the provider has, and as gateway the IP of the router. When I load my application it connects extremly fast, but it the router is down (disconnected) it takes about a minute, is this a normal behaviour, or something wrong in my settings because it looks like it first trys to find the server trought the ASDL Router, and afterwards locally, while the IP is a local range ?

Usually MySQL quickly determines that the server to which to connect
is inaccessible. Suppose, you should ask this question to developers of MySQL Server or gurus in Windows Sockets.

When u shot down the gateway you also disable dns lookups which slow down the process.
here you can read how mysql use dns and how to disable dns lookups.
