    Hello, I have a asus wl-600g router (linux os inside). All is working
    fine (each client see the router and can reach the web) but from a
    client on the wlan I can't reach others clients in the wlan, so the
    router doesn't route.

    This is the network:

    CLIENT 1 -------> ROUTER - Ping ok
    ROUTER --------> CLIENT 1 - Ping ok
    CLIENT 2 -------> ROUTER - Ping ok
    ROUTER --------> CLIENT 2 - Ping ok

    BUT

    CLIENT 1 <----------> CLIENT 2 - Ping doesn't reach

    Lan config:

    default gw: 192.168.1.1 mask: 255.255.255.0

    route table on the router:

    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref
    Use Iface
    213.205.24.97 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0
    0 ppp_8_35_1
    192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0
    0 br0
    default 213.205.24.97 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0
    0 ppp_8_35_1

    LEGEND: br0=lan and wlan
    ppp_8_35_1=wan

    What should I do to allow each client to see other wlan clients on the
    lan?
