 From the description you've given you dont actually need any 
firewalling to be done on the box, just act really as wireless to 
ethernet bridge.

I am using a very similar operation of probably identical hardware 
(WRAP2C?) where I am creating a hostap master on one card bridging that 
with the LAN that connects to a non wireless m0n0wall that provides the 
firewalling, dhcp, captive portal etc and on the other card in managed 
mode connected to a partner ap and routed onboard.

m0n0wall isnt really the best solution to what your trying to do! seeing 
that your using WRAP hardware try using m0n0bsd (another one of Manuel's 
great creations) doesnt have the same pretty gui (or in fact any gui :P) 
but if know a little about bsd you should be safe.

NB: m0n0bsd is like m0n0wall proper, freebsd4 based (ie no atheros support)

<my config script>
ifconfig sis0
sysctl net.link.ether.bridge=1
sysctl net.link.ether.bridge_cfg="wi1,sis0"
sysctl net.inet.ip.forwarding=1
ifconfig wi0 ssid sown-slashhome channel 5
ifconfig wi1 ssid sown-cyberfish channel 1 media DS/11Mbps mediaopt hostap
/usr/local/sbin/zebra -d
/usr/local/sbin/ospfd -d
</my config script>

Hope this helps
