You would need to give a bit more detailed explanation of what you are
trying to do and what kind of network configuration you are using.. If
you are using layer 2 bridging to connect number of APs and do not want
any of the client stations to talk directly to eachother, you would
probably need to use something like ebtables to configure filtering that
will only allow packets to be bridged if they are directed to the
default gateway MAC address.
