Until that's undone, it's not going to be very useful to me. I have two 
desktop computers with PCI wireless cards, one's acting as a relay. I 
have three Linux laptops with wireless, one's acting as a  relay. Any of 
the others might have both interfaces active at any time, and there's no 
guessing which (if either) should be the gateway to the Internet.

None of my Linux laptops and only one of the wireless desktops boots to 
runlevel 5.
