Recently I just wanna try the TDMA wireless network of FreeBSD. My network is
simple, just three computers, two connect by TDMA each other(one master, one
slave) and another computer connect the TDMA master computer by ethernet

For start, I just run the scripts  setup.tdma-master and
setup.tdma-slave(under /usr/src/tools/tools/net80211/scripts) on each TDMA
computer. These two scripts will create two tdma nodes with both bridged to
each wired NIC. After this, I think I could ping between these two bridge
but it doesn't work!!

At First I think the problem is happen in TDMA connection, so I set IP
addresses for two TDMA nodes, and I can ping between them, so the problem
maybe in the bridge setting. But looking into the scripts, I find there is
nothing differece with bridge setting in the handbook.

Am I missing something important here?

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could offer some information on
these questions!

Following are some of my network setting 
on the master node:


on the slave node:
