can associate with master, but cannot ping or anything else

this is without a doubt really basic, but can anyone please tell me why I can 
easily associate (managed mode on host with my hostap access 
point (master mode on host, but I cannot establish any kind of 
communication between the two hosts at all. Not even ping.

/var/log/syslog outputs:
Jan 14 20:00:07 localhost kernel: wlan0: <MAC of> auth_cb - STA 
Jan 14 20:00:07 localhost kernel: wlan0: <MAC of> assoc_cb - STA 
associated routes anything destined to network to gateway (my access point).

Access point ( routing table:
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface UGH   0      0        0 wlan0   U     0      0        0 eth0         UG    0      0        0 eth0

Btw, is this line from the routing table all wrong? (maybe I misunderstand 
something about defining static routes between hosts): UGH   0      0        0 wlan0

Best regards,
