Thanks to Doug, we determined that dhcp on this unit needs to point to 
the "bridge" as opposed to the "wlan1" interface.  That change got the 
DynaDish connected last night, but there are still some DNS issues to be 
resolved before it is fully functional.

Hopefully, we will end up with an improved set of step-by-step instructions.
