turn a firewall into a wireless access point?

I was curious if there was software to turn my firewall into a wireless
access point?   I've got a shorewall setup that has "net", "loc", and "dmz"
zones.  My plan was to make a "dmzw" zone for the wireless.  I've got an
Orinoco card + an ISA/PCMCIA adapter that I plan on using for the wireless

I'm looking for ways to assign the "ESID", manage ACLs, WEP, etc, like you
would on a standalone access point.  I realize even with these protections
that the wireless setup will be easy to compromise - that's why I'm
planning on making it part of a dmz.

Anyways, thanks for any pointers.

Take care,
