    I'm having the same problem, im not sure how to look for rejected ip's or
    2) duplicate all DROP lines and replace in the first lines DROP with LOG flags 6 level 4 prefix `Block 1 ', Block 2 etc and check the FW log for 'block x' messages
    after i run tcpdump -i wlan0 i get
    146 packets captured
    146 packets recieved
    0 packets dropped by kernel

    IPTABLES TUTORIAL might be a good starting place.
    Read through here and then ask your questions for what you do not understand.

    Lazydog thanks for your quick response
    I can eliminate firewall setting as being the source. the same set of rules are being used for the last month and always had internet.
    one thing weird i have not yet figured out is when i try to open the folder(gnome mode) which contains wlan0 config, i get message"location is not a folder"
    yet i can see all the content and edit the files in vi mode and command line.

    here is a bit of the contents capture dump received. let me know if you see anything unusual

    I have always used this interface Auto_HOME-AC52 to connect but ifconfig has always reported
    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:10:76:C4:A8:BF as the interface
    I have a config file named (ifcfg-Auto-HOME_AC52)and(ifcfg-wlan0)
    anyway to confirm which config is being used?

    turns out i was blocked from the router.
    someone may have been getting a rise out of me or the router blocked my ip after attemtping to bond interface
