I am designing a firewall to support 3 (and possibly 4) interfaces in my 
firewall. The first interface would be for external internet connections, 
the second for internal LAN, and the last is for a connection to multiple 
Access Points. This is for support of a WISP, and I have been using 
Smoothwall, thinking about migrating to IPCop, although I am please with how 
*BSD works, especially with IPFW and dealing with good lock down.

My question is, can I take mutiple AP, connect the to a switch, run the 
switch into the 3rd interface, and have the AP interface act as a seperate 
network segment. IPCop 1.4 does a seperate interface for wireless, but 
unfortunately it doesn't support multiple APs. My wireless interface needs 
to handle class B addressing, and I must be able to handle multiple AP 
coming through the single interface. Furthermore, I need to maintain the web 
interface accessibility (although I guess I could just script things and see 
if I could  make it work.).
