WLAN to LAN Communication - SonicWALL TZ215

We are implementing a site with WiFi and I am having troubles with the WLAN zone communicating with the LAN Zone.

X0 = LAN Subnet
X6 = WLAN Subnet

Firewall has allow all for  LAN -> WLAN  and  WLAN -> LAN

I tried setting a static route, with no luck {I think I did it right, and even tried a few ways}

I also tried doing a VPN tunnel for each as a long shot.  I set the "Destination" as the private address but no luck.

I read a lot of stuff online about the WLAN and LAN communication battles, but most of them were older and with TZ170,180s. etc.  

I swear this is setup exactly like our other locations DMZ {except the DMZ doesn't have the Allow all on the firewall,  just what is needed}  which should be very similar.  

The packet monitor just shows my ICMP as being dropped.  The logs say it is dropped due to policy,  but it does not say which policy.

What access points are you using? Do they run on a vlan?

I ended up having to implement with the WLAN and LAN zones bridged.  Not what I wanted to do, but it works for now.

Becasue I never found an answer to what I was trying to accomplish.  I had to implement in a different means to get it up and running due to time constrants.
