Does it work if you put a static IP on the client?

Also, browse to exec.php and run ifconfig, paste the output here or
email it to me.

There may be an issue with wireless bridging, there is part of the
code in pfSense that I didn't pull over in the wireless portion
related to bridging, but I don't think it affects 6.x so possibly not
an issue here. if_bridge doesn't like differing MTUs, but I think the
ath default changed to 2290 in 7.x, is 1500 in 6.x.
