This is gorilla, the new router to route over the Monkeybrains link.
It's sitting on top of r00ter.

Maybe rubin or someone changed the DHCPD configuration to hand out this
address as the router?

Gah! I've got no idea why wireless clients can't reach this IP. Is it
just that they can't ping, or they can't resolve ARP as well?

Ok, I set the dhcpd on r00ter to hand out as the default
route again.
If we want to enable this for certain machines that need a
higher-throughput connection, we could place one-off config inside
/etc/dhcpd.conf on r00ter.

I'll be at noisebridge tonight, so I'll figure out why the L2 path from
wireless->gorilla isn't working.
