 Pinging Issues
Date:   24-09-07 11:28

I now have no issues pinging names OR ip address from the wirless to the wired network. There is still a problem though.

I cannot ping either the name OR ip address of the wireless clients from the wireded network. I also cannot ping from one wireless client to the next (IP or Name). Both Wireded and Wireless networks have internet access so DHCP is assigning the proper addresses.

I did completly disable the firewall to make sure that was not an issue.


The internal DNS server is a Windows 2k3 server running AD and DHCP and resides on the same subnet as the wired clients. DHCP relay is set on the BSD router and the wireless clients are receiving IP addresses from the Windows server. I did have the BSD box set for DHCP but moved DHCP to Windows to see if that would resolve the issue. It did not.

It seems as though traffic is allowed through the wiresless nic IF the wireless nic initiates the conversation but it does not work the other way around. I did completely disable my firewall to make sure it was not a firewall issue.

I am using 802.11i for Wireless security.

QUICK UPDATE: Used Wireshark on the wireless to monitior ICMP... Echo Requests are being made but there are no echo replies
