    I have pfsense <v2 (i think it is version 1.9?) as a firewall/main router and DHCP server connected to the internet. I have tried with both Tomato and DD-WRT on a WRT54G device to set up an AP. In both cases I have functionality with a wireless connected labtop to the WRT54G except the two networks? cannot see each other (ping). Additionally I can ping both the main router and the Wrt54g from a computer connected to the main router but I can only ping the main router from the labtop. I am using "lan" ports via cable to connect the two devices. I have subnets set as /24 on the main router and on the WRT54g. Both device IP's are outside the DHCP range.

    What am I missing?

    Use "ipconfig" on a client of the Firewall/Router and on a client connected to the AP. Are they on the same subnet? (ex. is one 192.168.1.X and one 192.168.0.X)? If so the AP may be acting as a router and putting its clients on a different subnet.
