Yep, that fixes that.

I now have the problem that DHCP no longer works. dhcpd running on the hostap machine gets the requests, but the responses it sends out don't reach the client.

etc. as the client tries to continue to get an address - it hasn't seen the response.

The client is not running hostap.

What have I done wrong, or what more information do you require ?

Again, nothing has changed from the working prism2 setup.
