Ahh... yeah, you didn't mention roaming. :)
That will cause a problem in the sense that users will need to release
and renew their IPs to get a new lease on the new subnet if they move.
If the APs are far enough apart physically and don't really overlap, you
could name the SSIDs differently (by location for instance) and the
systems should be able to automatically join WiFi with the strongest
signal and then they would automatically get a new IP...
There really is no great solution without a small switch by the
m0n0wall, or without daisy-chaining the APs (assuming they each have a
few integrated switch ports)
