That's what I am doing. The problem is though how do I connect to the
administration after I take that card out? I can't seem to get in
through the WAN IP or the wireless IP when the original NIC is

That makes sense but can I still configure later on?

It is nothing by default. Maybe it would good if monowall could give
unconfigured wireless cards a random SSID by default so they can be
connected to once they are configured as the "LAN" interface.

iStumbler (which I assume is similar) doesn't show the card at all if
its not configured. Part of the configuration is to turn on SSID
braodcast I assume. So by default that would be off.
