Why don't you just use a m0n0wall in place of your Smoothie, running the
WAN to the Internet, the LAN to your internal network, and the OPT1
interface to your WiFi AP? This will eliminate one machine, simplify
your network, provide at least the same security as you currently have,
and also allow you to have SNMP access to the m0n0wall without the need
for a VPN from your machine to the internal IP on the m0n0wall (hint:
this is how I'd achieve your goals with your current configuration).
