I have several clients setup almost exactly like you described, I used 
private IP on all wireless connections then I NAT to the Internet on my 
wired net. (built the wireless net on the range) I used the 
Rootenna with Soekris boards and Senao cards, most are under a mile away, 
the longest link I have is 3.5 miles but not using the rootenna (had some 
distance problems with it.). Was pretty straight forward to setup with 
m0n0wall, just diagram out your subnets first because it can get confussing!
