Sorry, I think I misread or misunderstood your question in my previous 

The typical configuration of a home AP that is /not/ also a router for 
internet access, the AP will be working as a simple bridge. I've 
understood you've got:

   wifi AP --- FBSD ---- Router --- Internet

and the router does nat, in which case you need not do it on the FBSD 
box. If this is not your setup, please explain.
