    [SOLVED] OpenWRT is connected to internet but network clients can't


    Hi,

    got an asus wl500gp v2 and i just had to reflash it. Flashing went through fine, but while setting up the PPPoE connection I got stuck. Here is what the configuration looks like:

    ADSL Modem ---Ethernet--- Router ---Ethernet--- Laptop
    I set up OpenWRT to connect over PPPoE over the WAN port and the connection is established:

    PAP authentication succeeded
    peer from calling number XX:XX:XX:XX authorized
    replacing old default route to br-lan
    local IP address 95.237.X.Y
    remote IP address 192.168.100.1
    So from my ISP there is the gateway 192.168.100.1, which is fine with me. The router got its static routes settled like this:

    192.168.100.1 * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
    192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 br-lan
    default * 0.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 ppp0
    and when I log into the router with ssh I can ping and nslookup the world.

    traceroute 8.8.8.8
    ...
    ...
    13 google-public-dns-a.google.com (8.8.8.
    But same does not apply to my laptop:

    route
    192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
    default 192.168.2.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth1
    tracepath 8.8.8.8
    1: 192.168.2.223
    1: 192.168.2.1
    1: 192.168.2.1
    2: 192.168.2.1
    2: 192.168.2.1
    Resume: pmtu 1492 hps 2 back 255
    What the hell is going on there?! The router can connect fine and the routes are settled, but somehow my lan clients cant get past the router. Any ideas that fix the problem?

    I just recognized that DNS is resolved from my client:

    nslookup What Is My IP Address - Shows Your IP Address
