Only works if I use particular command line options.

no idea - this is just what I collected and I thing there are access
points from eg, Linksys, Elsa, DLink which have that feature.. You can
use them as 802.11 Client and internel they do bridging between the
WLAN and the ethernet device - don't know how but they do or the do
something else with the same effect...

Sorry the part regarding the library is specially for hermes based
(orinoco) WLAN cards.
