arp timeout from ROM, not from floppy

im trying to boot my clients across a router from a FreeBSD box.
When booting within the same c-class (no router between bootp-server and client) everything works fine,
from disk and from EPROM, when booting from floopy booting works also across the router.
When i write the SAME image as on the disk to an EPROM an try to boot from EPROM with bootp-server in a different subnet
, the client recieves the configuration from bootp (local IP, Server IP. filename) correctly, after that the client reports
TFTP: ARP Timeout
As said before, the same image always works fine when booted from disk, it also works when booted from EPROM within the same subnet.
Any suggestions what could be the problem?
