I've setup a link similar to this.  It was to allow filesharing between
two houses without depending on our ISP's speed.

Are you configuring your far end to have the WLAN as the WAN port?  This
is the best way I came up with.

Each house has 2 m0n0wall boxes, one for an internet connection, and one
on the roof to beam over to the other house.  The gateway m0n0wall boxes
have static routes pointing to the other person's LAN with the next hop
being the roof.

Each rooftop box (4511's) is configured with SIS0=LAN, WI0=WAN.  An
IPSEC tunnel is configured between these two boxes' WAN interface.

Crude Art:

    (LAN1)                          (LAN2)
	ROOFTOP1  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  ROOFTOP2
      /      \                       /       \
     /        \                     /         \
   LAN         \			    LAN          \   \        \
		   WAN              WAN

I know this explanation is more about my setup than helping you with
yours, but it may lead you in the right direction...maybe.

E-mail me back if you have any questions and I can go into more detail
once I figure out what you've done.
