Is there like a GUI or something that will make this allot easier because im having a hell of a time grasping the concept. Normally im against a gui but in this case i think just to learn how its configured it wouldn't be such a bad thing.

I would liek to start playing around with setting up AP's but its not going to get me very far unless i learn the forwarding, routing, etc. Copying the commands from the read me's and how to's is great but id rather just know how it works so i can set up some more exotic configurations. Like AP > LAN > AP ... that way we can serve up a rouge thats actually connected to another AP .. sniffing everything in between of course

I have a decent understanding of the network layer and IP / Subnet's and im pretty sure i know how it needs to be done, my problem is just in implementing the rules.
