I'm trying to set up a Wireless AP with DragonFly 1.1-CURRENT (cvsup'd 8/24).

The problem I am having is very strange: the machine contains 3 network interfaces, 1 is hard wired and goes to the outside world, and is called dc0. Another is a wired card that is hard wired and connects to the local network and is called dc1, which has an IP of netmask The last network interface is the wireless card, which is picked up by the wi driver, so it is wi0. It has the network IP of netmask Here is the output of ifconfig:

I wanted to also mention that dmesg is spitting out this error over and over:

arp: is on dc1 but got reply from 00:02:2d:57:a3:4a on wi0

To me it really looks like the error is in the bridging but I don't know what to do to fix it.

You're not supposed to have a IP on both the wired and the wireless interface if you are going to have both the interfaces on the same network. Remove the IP from the wireless device, and make sure briding is working properly.

The problem persists without an IP on the wireeless interface. Originally, it didn't have one. Oddly, the wireless clients can't even get an IP from DHCP when wi0 didn't have an IP, however I have again removed it, although as I said the problem persists.

How can I test if bridging is working properly? Here is the output of sysctl:
$ sysctl -a | grep bridge
net.link.ether.bridge_cfg: "wi0,dc1"
net.link.ether.bridge: 1
