[OLSR-users] Using the mesh to connect to the internet

yes, you have to setup your linux box (i assume you are using linux
on your router machine) for nat (read network address translation).
- linux NAT howto: http://www.netfilter.org/documentation/HOWTO/NAT-
- if you are using the gnome desktop you probably want to use
firestarter and it's "internet connection sharing" feature: http://
if you have additional questions about NAT i suggest you posting them
to the mailing list of your linux distribution. it seems that you
have configured olsr correctly but not NAT.
hope it helps
