You don't have to bridge your network (I never have), but certainly it 
can be a valid configuration.  However you don't need to touch iptables 
to setup a bridge, so I'm not sure where you ran into trouble.

The wifidog documentation assumes you already have a valid working 
network.  While I haven't had an issue with the documentation, it is 
sparse.  I'm sure more documentation will be welcomed.

It uses PHPMailer by default, which send email directly to other SMTP 
servers.  You can change this in config.php to use the local server 
"sendmail" or a remote server "smtp".
