Yes, that must be it.  If you can use it as a gateway, but not ping it
or access samba, it must be killing icmp (ping) and netbeui (windows
share).  This might be desirable for a normal TCP/IP gateway, but not in
your case.  Shouldn't be hard to fix, but sadly I don't have a 2.4 box
(excepting my iPAQ, which is not a firewall!) to play with.
