It's kind of a hack, but it should work  that way.  Of course, you're limited on the # of interfaces
you could use in that scenario.

Yes, If you have only 2 interfaces, I don't know how to assign the
second interface as Opt1. The manual config ever ask for lan and after
for wan. You can not cancel the wan and go to the opt1 option if you
have only 2 network cards.

firewall rules, it would be a much better solution in your case to use something else.  A stock load
of just about any *nix should be able to do everything you need.
