I bridged my wireless adapter into my internal LAN on the beta.  It was a 
extream pain to get working.  My main issue was my lack of knowledge about 
the way to pass the traffic.  Most of my frustation came from IE 7 
pre-filling some forms with in correct values.  After fixing those and a few 
quick saves with a few other theaks I finally got it working and have not 
had any real issues.

I have a machine that I will be getting back soon with the same type of 
configuration as you have.  I will be glad to setup a similar configuration 
and see if I can reproduce the error.  Let me know.
