Ok, slick...you are more than half way there. Carry on with bringing
over a client to the wireless side of things (even if it's just cabled
into the Linksys for now), to see if you can get through the AP, to the
router. Then proceed to try to ping the cabled iface of the FBSD box
from said client. If you can do that, then try a wireless client, to
ensure the problem doesn't stem from wifi connectivity.
And again, tcpdump is a very good tool. The -i switch tells it what
interface to listen on, so if the wireless side of the router works but
you can't ping across to the cabled side, then apply the cabled
interface to the -i switch and you'll be able to see if traffic is
making that far, and if it is, if it's even attempting to go back.
Cheers, and good luck!
