Only works if I use particular command line options.

proxy arp might also help and some people thing there might be a
possibility with a special firmware for prism based cards oder you need
a complete version of the hcf library which controls every function of
the card and also allows accessing the card?s RAM. To get this full
version Lucent wants to know that it will be a financial win for them,
also you have to sign an NDA. So be sure that you won?t most probably
get access to this peace of software until Lucent does not change its
mind in this (which I doubt never will happen).
Another answer I've got was:
Tunnel your traffic through a virtual tunnel like cipe or vtun. Vtun's
probably the easiest way to do it.
IP routing and WDS could also help maybe there is also a possibility
using the bridge filters but I have no idea how.
If you solve the problem please let me know how;)
