Create a bridge, add the wireless card to the bridge, put IP space on 
the bridge.  I, also, put an administrative MAC on the bridge interface. 
  By doing it this way, you could change the wlan card and no arp issues 
for customers, plus, the interface is always running, so IP space is 
always shared via ospf (it is likely this is the issue you are seeing 
anyway).
