Problems with inbound traffic

    I have the current setup.
    Checkpoint firewall running on solaris with 4 interfaces in use.
    1 interface is the external wired to a draytek vigor for internet access.
    1 interface is dmz1 for some hosting stuff.
    1 interface is for internal for my machines.
    Final interface has a WRT54G running dd-wrt in WDS mode wired via the LAN port, not the WAN port. In turn the WRT54G is wirelessley connected to another WRT54G running in repeater mode (in the same subnet). Wired to this via the LAN port not WAN port, is a console server with various devices attached.
    For the purposes of testing, the WRT54G's have firewall turned off, no mac filtering (except wds mac), no other restrictions configured.

    The problem
    If I wifi from my laptop to either WRT54G's I can browse the net and access my console server, etc.
    If I try to connect to either WRT54G or console server from any other network or the firewall, I get destination host unreachable from the firewall.
    The WRT54G's and console server's mac addresses are in the firewalls arp cache, static routes, although not needed (directly connected networks) are all pointing to the main WRT54G for both WRT54G's and console server's ip addresses.

    Am I trying to do something dd-wrt just does not allow - traffic to be initiated externally?

    Any help would be extremely appreciated.
    Many thanks

    odd problem, i'd imagine it has something to do with the WDS link...i'd start by seeing if router1 can connect to the console server...
    if that works i'd check what packets are going thruogh when you try connecting via the lan with tcpdump on the physically connected router... see if it's recieving the packets and then see if their being recieved on router2... i'm sure theres a way to get it working, may take some investigating...
