The FAQ says:
Q: I can't seem to use Open vSwitch in a wireless network.
A: Wireless base stations generally only allow packets with the source
MAC address of NIC that completed the initial handshake.
Therefore, without MAC rewriting, only a single device can
communicate over a single wireless link.
This isn't specific to Open vSwitch, it's enforced by the access
point, so the same problems will show up with the Linux bridge or
any other way to do bridging.
