DNS Problems from WLAN to LAN

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hello all.

I have a problem with DNS over the WLAN.  I can ping internal resources by host name but I can't browse to the network and see anything (our WLAN and LAN networks are on separate VLANs).  I can't get to any of our internal websites.

I imagined that this had something to do with some ports being blocked between the VLANs but that isn't the case, the firewall rules allow all protocols in both directions.
The DHCP is being doled out by the WAPs instead of any AD integrated DHCP, yet the computers connecting over the WLAN are still pointing to the correct DNS servers.
