 Subject:  No Internet Access via OPT1 wireless interface

Been going round and round with my new WRAP 3054 from Netgate without  
success trying to add wireless connectivity to an existing network.

I've provided more history / desired requirements below; here is the  
current config and issue:

m0n0wall 1.2b7
WRAP 3054 with 1 nic and 1 wireless card (atheros b/g)

LAN -> sis0
WAN -> vlan0 -> sis0
OPT1 -> ath0

OPT1 is serving DHCP and wireless clients can connect, but cannot  
reach internet / email, etc. Tried various firewall rules without  
success and finally opened everything wide open:

           Proto / Source / Port / Destination / Port
LAN:     *           *              *               *               *
WAN:    *           *              *               *               *
OPT1:   *           *              *               *               *

Still no success getting through. This is relaxed as it can get  
right? (BTW - this is within an existing firewalled internal network,  
so please don't yell at me just yet!)

Other configs / things I've tried:

I thought perhaps there was an issue with WAN being assigned to a  
vlan, so I switched LAN to vlan0 and WAN to sis0, but when the WRAP  
reboots, the wireless card is now turned off and I cannot access the  
webgui to turn it back on.

Originally, I was trying to set things up with LAN -> ath0 and WAN ->  
sis0, since that is really all I need here, but could not ever get  
through the WAN port to access the webgui in order to turn on the  
wireless card (yes I saw the FAQ item 16.18 - couldn't get it to work).

I did have a brief moment of joy when I was able to bridge OPT1 onto  
LAN and everything worked fine... until I realized I couldn't use  
Captive Portal - which is an imperative to the project.

What I am trying to accomplish is add a wireless AP to an existing  
network that will use captive portal and radius to allow various  
levels of access to both the network and the internet.
