windows bridge with wireless but no internet on linux


Hi all,
I have a windows bridge with a wireless card bridged with the onboard NIC. In linux I can ping the router and I have an address assigned through dhcp, but I can't get the internet through linux. Any ideas?

What output do you get from the following commands?
/sbin/route
cat /etc/resolv.conf

What is the IP address of your router?
