So I was given an old palm pixi and with the lack of wifi I thought I'd tried usbnet to see if I could turn this into a fun little project. I have usbnet setup on the palm and I've got it running fine in gentoo. Everything is working like it sould, I bridged my connections in gentoo and then ran dhclient usb0 on the palm pixi. It got an ip address from my router and by all indications it should be good. However I can not ping anything and I can't access anything. So next I tried to bridge the connections on the pixi. Then use dhclient br0, still gets an ip address fine but then I can't ping the network or the outside world.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?
