Not with IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN. Which other AP are you using? Do you know whether it supports WDS frames? If you do not need to have station associating to the card using Host AP driver, you could use Repeater mode and IEEE 802.11 compliant WDS frames. This would of course require that the other AP supports such frames.
