no dhcp through wlan0


I have a wireless card setup in my router and i have got it working as an ap, but it won't hand out ip addresses over the wireless connection. also if I manually set the ip (192.168.2.X) I can ping the wireless card (192.168.2.1) and the wired nic(192.168.1.1) but I can't bring up any web pages. since this seems to me to be an issue with routing and dnsmasq, and not setting up the wireless card i'm posting in the main networking forum. i also have another thread going on the clarkconnect forums

here are some highlights for anyone gracious enough to help.

Code:
