then it doesn't seem to be using that gateway.  

but... Just saw something.  That interface is named "portal", assuming
you're using captive portal on it?  I believe that'll drop any traffic
coming into the interface without regard to the state table because
it's ipfw at that stage until authenticated, at which point ipfilter
takes over and states will again apply.

so what you probably want to try is taking out your NAT rule and
putting in an exception in captive portal for your AP.  I'd be
interested in hearing if that works.

if you enable outbound NAT, you'll need NAT rules that map you to your
WAN IP when going out to the internet.
