Can't ping WRT54G under Linux - why not?

    I have two WRT54G running DD-WRTv23 in WDS.

    I have a laptop and desktop that both connect wirelessly no problem under XP, and are file/print shared.

    I have installed Slackware 10.2 Linux on both machines and each can connect to the internet wirelessly just great (I use NDISwrapper and the XP drivers for the two WiFI NICs).

    However, under Linux, neither machine can ping either the router, or each other. Why not?

    Thanks for any help you can offer...

    firewall perhaps?

    what IP addresses do both PC's have?

    Are they all on the same subnet?
