Thanks, I will try that.

I have it setup now:

cable modem --> linksys befw11s4 ---> PC's

I want to go cable modem  --> m0n0 ----->switch  ---> PC's
                                                             \---> 
wireless AP (befws4)

Can I spoof the MAC address from the linksys?
Thanks,
Rich
