I am not sure what you are precisely trying to do… 
But if your idea is to have a neutral wireless AP, you will want to: 

1. bridge the WAN and WLAN together. 

2. deactivate all firewalling on your box (advanced network or firewall 
settings). 

3. In case you want to filter, you might want to change the settings in 
advanced so that you filter on the bridge rather than on each interface (in the 
sysctl pane). 


If you have console access to the FW, use the "pfctl -d" command line to 
deactivate the FW - It'll ease your job !


Thanks.
