    Hello everybody!

    Problem: My WLAN-client can't connect to the internet.


    (The fritz.box 7050 is a nice DSL/WLAN/VoIP-Router from AVM. A PC and a Apple Desktop connected to the switch via LAN work fine.)

    I can connect the WRT from WAN and WLAN without problems, configure it, apply new firmware etc.
    With the WRTs build-in PING and TRACEROUTE I can connect to everyting by IP or URL so even the DNS (DNS masq deamon on the fritz.box) works fine. So routing in general should be ok?

    But the WLAN-Client can't connect to anything else than the WRT!(I can connect to it using either or !)
    Do I have to enable the routing in any way? Do I need a default access restriction which allows packets to pass from the WLAN to the WAN?

    I installed Tofu13c. With the ssh-console I could go deeper into iptable configuration now, but I'm sure this could be set up properly using the web-interface.

    Any Idea?

    Thanks in advance
