Well, yes, we are running iptables on the box as well...we use the nocat
package for redirecting the wireless clients to an auth system.  I don't
see anything unusual happen during these requests in the tables output
though fwiw, but, it's possible I guess to be the problem...but even
then, wouldn't we see the attempt in the dump?  It literally looks like
after the offer, it's dropped on the client side.  Doesn't look like the
client ever comes back?
