Wireless NIC to LAN Communication no go



  • I have been trying to get my laptop to communicate from my wireless NIC to the LAN and am unable to. I have a 10.x.x.x on the lan and a 192.x.x.x on the Wireless NIC. I have a rule in place on the wireless that allows it to communicate to anything and the same on the lan but I can only get communication from the LAN to the Wireless not the Wireless to the lan. Any ideas? I'm fresh out.

    Might I also add that according to the logs the traffic is passed but if for instance I try to ping something I get no reply. If I try to contact another machine I get no reply from the Wireless to the LAN.

    If I try and ping from the lan to the Wireless I get no reply but I can connect to a machine.



  • I'm assuming since this is posted in multi-wan that you have multiple WANs.
    If this is the case, pay close attention to the LAN and Wireless firewall rules. A rule that changes the gateway will bypass the routing table and forward all traffic via that gateway. Even if the destination is another interface.



  • No, this is not a multi-wan setup. I thought that because this was also a routing area that I might post it here. If you can't tell I don't post a lot.
