The unit I am using has two 5004 MP ATHEROS 4G / CM9 cards. Yes, it's a 
WRAP 2C. Will MonoBSD work with this setup? If not, this sort of thing 
has got to be possible with all the software out there in the world!! 
More explination of what I am doing... Wireless network with 11a 
backhaul. Every unit has a 11a and 11b card on a WRAP board. I want all 
traffic to pass unconditionally back to the root of the internet where 
my DHCP server is running and all my firewalls are already in place.
