I know, the chicken and egg problem. I've thought about it, too... But
here's what you can do right now:

- configure the wireless card as OPT1 and an Ethernet NIC as LAN

- configure as usual via webGUI

- download the configuration ("backup")

- move the wireless section from the opt1 interface to LAN and modify the
interface names as required. The XML syntax should be pretty
self-explanatory; see the config.xml that's available for downloading on
m0n0.ch/wall (below the CD-ROM image) for some comments

- upload the file again ("restore").

That should do it.
