Pi as a WiFi access point: can't ping 8.8.8.8

Wed Nov 06, 2013 10:12 pm

New to Pi. I've tried the adafruit tutorial on setting up Pi as a WiFi access point. I can connect from a Windows PC and can ping the Pi (192.168.42.1), but cannot ping the DNS server (8.8.8.8), and of course DNS doesn't work. Tutorial says "something is wrong with dhcpd or the NAT configuration." I've re-checked all the dhcpd and NAT setups but cannot find an error. Ideas on how to debug this further? I'm using the Onion Pi (large antenna) kit.

Any help would be appreciated.

can you paste the configuration file for the dhcp server, and also the output of the commands iptables -t nat -L and iptables -L

Found it myself (fat finger filename fumbling) - thanks for the quick response.
