Just installed 29 Cisco 1242 devices.  From hardlines I can ping any device on any AP.  From a wireless device, I can ping any device not on the same AP.  What stops the pinging on the same AP?

an ICMP relay. the wireless LAN needs to route traffic to a gateway that can reach all the AP's.

can you go from one AP to another without dropping pings?

Yes, can roam from AP to AP without dropping.  All devices are on the same SSID.  Most of the wireless devices are stationary computers and Intermec printers.  APs are connected to the same Catalyst 4000 switch.

Sounds like Wireless Isolation is enabled...

On the 1242 Web Interface:

Go to Network Interfaces, select Radio0-802.11G or A then settings, and look for (PSPF) Public Secure Packet Forwarding, Choose Disable.
