    4747  A: You don't need a wireless card directly in the machine running the gateway (client).  But every wireless (or wired) clients the gateway is to manage must be bridged at layer 2 to the ethernet interface wifidog is configured to gate (GatewayInterface).  In practice, it means that the wireless router must be used as a pure access point by connecting a LAN port (NOT the WAN port) to the interface on the machine running the gateway.
