As I understand OP the DLink is required for the DSL connection and 
provides Ethernet to the FBSD box which then has a second interface 
connecting to the AP. I got a similar setup.

You cannot take the DSL router out of that setup, but it should be 
possible with some routers to have that be the bridge (pppoe I think). 
In that setup the FBSD must do the nat.
