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;)
