I initially had problems not getting an IP from my OPT1 DHCP interface from
a wireless client. My problem was that I had enabled WEP (my only option on
my AP) and the client was not connecting to the AP. Once that was resolved,
I got an IP from my m0n0 and everything worked. 

Are your wireless clients connecting to the AP? Try setting up the AP on the
LAN side just for testing... 

Can you connect a wired client to the OPT1 interface on the m0n0 and get an
IP? It should be a separate subnet.

I think the only difference to your config is that I only have DHCP running
my Opt1 interface, not my LAN interface.

I am trying to run a Monowall firewall so that users on the wireless network
have to use VPN to connect. I have 3 ethernet cards installed in the
computer and monowall installed. The 3rd network card is set as opt1 and has
DHCP server turned on (as does the LAN one) but I cannot seem to get a DHCP
lease from it. I can only get an IP from the LAN NIC. Is there some step I'm
