Can you ping the computers from the routers?

# ip address show

Looks good.

I tried pinging the PC's from the router and all was successful; 0% loss.

So there is connectivity. From one side.

It's a D-Link router running DD-WRT, so I guess you can call it a
switch. Both of my SUSE wired PC's are connected directly to it. I'm
confident that hypothetically, if each PC was connected via wired
ethernet to an individual DD-WRT client bridge router (1 client bridge
router per PC) there would be no problem with those 2 PC's talking with
each other, pinging, sharing files, etc. But here there's a situation
where 2 wired ethernet computers are both connected to the switch, and
then that traffic is routed to the master router via wireless link and
back via wireless, and then routed out through the wired ports. I think
it has something to do with the routing table and modifying the advanced
routing table in the client bridge router to do what I'm trying to do,
but that is just a guess.

Maybe the problem is first understanding what a "client bridge router" is.

Most "home" routers have a 4 port integrated switch on the LAN side.
