Wireless Internet trouble, ARP issue?

I am trying to get the wireless working on my Toshiba Satellite M115 on Slackware. I installed the madwifi drivers using this guide: [can't post guide because this is my first post].

I get an IP from my router like I should. I can ping my router. When I try to my wired machines the packets time out. If I try to ping another wireless device I get destination unreachable.

When I do a arp I get both my router and the machine I am trying to working's IP. Is this odd?

Can anyone give any insight to what might be going on?

This issue also occurs when using eth0. Other computers can ping my laptop.

Problem solved. I was using dhclient when I should have been using dhcpcd.
