 Subject:  m0n0wall cant see the network on the other side of the wireless ap

Hello all
I'm prety new to networking so this problem might seem stupid to someone
but I just cant seem to detect the problem in order to solve it. so please
here is the deal
I have a ADSL connection trough a modem (d-link ethernet modem 360t) which
is connected to the WAN inteface (PPPoE) of m0n0wall (v1.11 generic-pc)
and the LAN interface is connected to a switch (wrc-1000 toshiba wireless
router used at the moment as a switch <- maybe this is the problem). On
the switch there are few wired computers and a Linksys WAP-54g which
funtions in the role of a ap. The Linksys is connected to a Senao 2611 and
behind the Senao there is another wired net. All the computers and
wireless devices are in the same subnet (

wan->m0n0wall->switch->linksys-....    ....-senao->switch
		     |                                    |
                  |                                    |
               computers 1                          computers 2

The problem:
m0n0wall connects to the ADSL modem (PPPoE) and after that it acts as a
gateway to the computers on the wired side (ex. computers 1 have internet
while computers 2 have not). The connection on the both sides is working
(tested trough succesfull ping's on the both side of the network). I have
tryed to ping the computers on the other side of the wireless network
trough m0n0wall but there was no response (no route? packet drop? why?),
at the same time computers were pinging eatchother without any problems.

At this time in order to enable for the computers to have internet i run
WinXp proffesional with internet sharing and it works fine.

thanks in advance for your time and help

regards Petar Vlahu, Macedonia
