PC to work as wireless router +access point


hi,
i want to convert a PC to work as wireless router along with access point capability. I've a Netgear wireless card WPN311 and i made that interface to work as the access point. I've tried to configure routing using the quagga routing software but not working. Can anyone guide how can i turn the PC to work as any commercial wireless router.
I'm having 1 Wireless card and 2 ethernet cards.Slackware 12.1 OS, and quagga routing software.

Good to go...you already have a wireless network


If you want to have WPA2-PSK and EAP type authentication enabled, then you might want to take a look at hostapd
