[opensuse] Off Topic: Wired PC's Behind Client Bridge Can't Ping Each Other
I have 2 wired ethernet PC's connected to a DD-WRT router running in client bridge mode. Both have internet access just fine, and both can access the main router's GUI administration page. Any PC connected wirelessly to the main router can also access the client bridge router's admin page as well. The problem I'm running into, is that the 2 wired PC's can't talk to each other. Pings fail when trying to access either PC; I've tried it on both:

PING 192.168.1.5 (192.168.1.5) 56(84) bytes of data.
From 192.168.1.4 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
From 192.168.1.4 icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
From 192.168.1.4 icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable

I also tried with a Windows PC just to be sure it's not a SUSE issue and the same thing happens. There is more than one DD-WRT client bridge router on this network, so I plugged in a Windows laptop to a different client bridge router and pinging both my SUSE boxes were successful. Is there some reason why the wired PC's can't communicate with each other? It's obviously some routing issue that involves the traffic going into some looping state, over my head...
