I don't know exactly what jgate is or how it works, but it doesn't
seem to do NAT/PAT - rather, it looks like it's a simple TCP proxy.
Since with that solution, as far as the AP is concerned, the TCP
connection comes from the Linux box (rather than the Internet host
that you're trying to connect from), the AP doesn't need a default
gateway to respond.

You must set a default gateway. Otherwise it won't work with
m0n0wall, since it doesn't include a TCP proxy - so the APs need a
way to send packets back to the Internet.
