[ubuntu] ufw blocking internet connection

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey guys, I've been at this for quite a while, searched all over the internet and came up with nothing. Hopefully someone here much smarter than I am could help me figure this out. I've set up a wireless access point which uses my computer as its dhcp server/internet filter. It also runs all traffic through a squid proxy because I was playing with upside-down-ternet. I wouldn't say I'm experienced with too much of linux but I'm slowly trying to get the hang of it. Now I would like to setup some iptable rules to keep the network safe. I don't understand iptables too well so I opted to use ufw. (Hardware)
