Just to let you know, I got it working, setup with the wifi card as WAN, then add a rule to allow
administration from the WAN, re-assigned interfaces and administrered from the WAN to setup the
access point, all works a treat!!!
So....if anyone has any single ethernet boards they want to get rid of, please let me know, I will
buy them off you...

You should find a menuentry "wireless configuration" looking similiar to this screenshot:
Hostap-mode means to run the card as Accesspoint.

Betreff: [m0n0wall] Wireless Access point LAN interface?
The features list of m0n0wall suggest that the wireless can be used as an access point...
wireless support (access point with PRISM-II/2.5/3 cards, BSS/IBSS with other cards including Cisco)
i have a PRISM 2.5 card installed, and then assign this interface to the LAN side, i have allocated
it an IP address, but how do i connect to m0n0wall, and set this card to work as an access point,
setup wep key, ssid etc etc...i cant even connect to the monowall, as i dont know how to initiate a
wireless connection. (running a scan from my laptop does not show any wireless networks available)
The hardware is all tested as i have configured it on the WAN interface no problem.
