OpenBSD doesn't support WDS, so you're out of luck and your plan won't work
like this. Sorry. If the wifi router supports WDS you could try to build
a wireless bridge with some other device (e.g. some device running OpenWRT)
and run a cable to your OpenBSD box from there.

My bad, I didn't realize you couldn't bridge this way. I have the
reverse setup going in my room, wire from gateway to BSD box which
provides an additional access point to other wireless devices in my
I know it doesn't meet your original requirements but you could set up
your openbsd box to host a second LAN off of re0 and then nat-to its
address on the wireless. Or just set up a second network and
configure your routing tables approriately and you shouldn't need NAT.
