Well seeing how you are using for the LAN and for the Wireless and they are all connected to the switch
that might be the issue. Why don't you just place everything on the subnet and I'm sure your problems will go away. Use the
upper addresses for the wireless and the lower one for the LAN

You are using 2 different subnets and they are trying to go through a
router to get to one another. Guarddog most likely doesn't do any
routing from to and that is why when Guarddog is
up traffic doesn't pass.

Since I don't know what type of Linksys router you are using I can
only guess. Which port on the Linksys are you connecting to the switch?
The wan port or a normal switch port? If the WAN port then all routing
between and is done on the Linksys box and the
linux box shouldn't matter. If a normal switch port then routing is being
done by the linux box.
