Destination Host Unreachable

    I recently hooked 2 Linksys WRT54G's together using WDS via this tutorial:

    http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=2946

    And I thought everything was working great but it doesn't appear that way when I am connected wirelessly to the internal WDS router (not the one connected to the Internet via the WAN port). When I try to get to some sites I get "Destination Host Unreachable". These sites are definitely up and reachable but not when going from a wireless PC to internal WRT54G to external 54g they are not.

    The IP ranges don't seem to give anything away either. I try to ping/browse www.espn.com and get "Destination Host Unreachable" but www.yahoo.com I have no problems.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Just a thought - make sure any access lists, filters or firewall is turned off on your INTERNAL wds node.

    Is you internal WDS node using the internet connected router for DNS info??

    Firewall is disabled on the internal router.

    I'm not sure where to set the DNS for the internal router itself.

    I think the problem is that it doesn't have a default route but I'm not sure how to get one on it.

    Here's the route table for the internal router:

    192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 br0
    127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo

    Shouldn't there be a route that looks like this?

    default * 192.168.0.1 UG 0 0 0 br0

    192.168.0.1 is the external router.

    Default Route isn't set on internal WDS router.

    Not having a default route is definitely my problem. I put the following line in my startup script

    route add default gw 192.168.0.1

    and that fixed it.

    But, that's obviously not the correct solution. Or I'd think it isn't. So, how do I get a default gateway into the internal WDS router? (And how do I get DNS in there as well). Using the Interface Basic Settings Setup Menu I can enter a Static IP but that's not going to put it on the right interface (br0).

    Thanks

    Well, it was part of my problem. The other part was that I was running PeerGuardian.
