I setup my regular DWL900AP in point to point mode with the mac address of my 
HostAP box and I am able to ping the box behind the HostAP box and the rest 
of the network via the DWL900AP connected to my LAN.  Standard compliant WDS 
frames (which 1.7.4 supports) had to be enabled for this to work.

I had to bridge wlan0 and wlan0wds0 on the HostAP box for this to work 

It's almost 4am; More on this later.
