I have my monowall working as a AP.  Using an engenius miniPCI radio (160
mw), pigtail and antenna all in a Soekris box.

I've also had it working with a regular PCMCIA version of the same radio in
the same box.

Using monowall v1.0.  I do have the wireless interface bridged with the LAN.

I know others have had problems.  Maybe I just got lucky with a good
firmware version or just didn't give up soon enough - I am a bit hard
headed. :-)
