sendmsg: Operation not permitted error on wireless nic after failed routing attempt

I have been playing around a bit with routing tables to get my pc to act as a router, but i wound up with the second nic (wireless,eth2) not wanting to send anything. I have flushed just about everything and rebuilt my routing table, but i still can't see what's wrong.

When i unplug eth0(wired) and configure eth2(wlan), i can't send anything, but it seems to recieve something, though i have no idea what it is, and it is able to get itself an ip from a router, but that's all i can do with it.

Ifconfig says:

looks like both nics are on the same network, change the ip address on the wireless to Also adjust the devices on the wireless side accordingly IE
