Been pulling my hair out for two days trying to get this working, I give, please help.

I've got a REALLY simple bridge -

br1             8000.244bfe0a08c9       yes             bond0.12

I'm able to ping my DHCP server (via bond0.12) from my router -

[email protected]:/jffs# ping -I br1
PING ( 56 data bytes
64 bytes from seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.818 ms
64 bytes from seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.698 ms
--- ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 0.698/0.758/0.818 ms

[email protected]:/jffs#

I see traffic come *in* the wl0.1 interface -

23:51:35.011103 IP > BOOTP/DHCP, Request from my:4h:0n:3f:00:b4 (oui Unknown), length 286
23:51:36.944442 IP > BOOTP/DHCP, Request from my:4h:0n:3f:00:b4 (oui Unknown), length 286

but I do not see that traffic exit my bond0.12 interface. Anyone have any insight into what the hell is going on here?? Thanks!

Finally found it ... ebtables ... didn't know that was a thing.

As I don't seem to be able to delete this thread, I guess I'll just leave all this here for posterity.
