Well, yes, you will need a 3rd NIC to be able to use bridging. One interface
(LAN in your case) will not be used, except maybe for accessing the webgui,
but you can do that via ssl (https) over the bridged interface too, if you
create the right rules.

Also, you will need that 3rd interface to be bridged with the WAN interface
in your situation.

In the current version (pb27), you are able to assign the interfaces in

Hope you'll get there! :)
