Sorry about this, I was fooling around with the image and somehow I 
messed it up. Now only arp replies go out over the interfaces (wireless 
and wired), but traffic doesn't. Here's the image though:


22:03:52.262990 arp who-has tell
22:03:52.265409 arp reply is-at 00:0d:b9:00:59:08
22:03:52.265469 IP > icmp 64: echo request 
seq 0
(but no reply)

Oh well, hope you have fun with it. I'm sure it just takes a bit of 
playing around with, but I'm just too tired today to keep at it. Maybe 
it'll work tomorrow :)
