I've tried this before. I have two m0n0wall boxes. One has the WiFi as 
WAN interface and the other has WiFi on the LAN.
For the mode I set them both to BSS (infrastructure). (btw you got IBSS, 
BSS/adhoc, infrastructure mixed up in your email)
Set up both side with the same SSID, WEP key, and Mode. I leave the 
station name field blank.

For the box with WiFi on the WAN interface, choose type to be DHCP and 
disable the "Block private networks" option
at the bottom. I am assuming you are picking up an IP from the DHCP 
server in the private network segment.

For the box with WiFi on the LAN interface, enable your DHCP server on 
the LAN side.

Hope that helps.
