Yes. That is what HNA messages are for. You can run olsrd on wlan0 and
set what netwroks you will act as a gateway to in the config file.

Interfaces cannot, as of yet, be added at runtime. This means that
interfaces on which olsrd is to run, must be configured before olsrd
is started.

On a different note
I have been working on a IP address autoconfiguration protocol that
is impemented for olsrd. But sadly, as of yet the code is not publically
avalibe since the work is done for a company I work for.
But the solution will be presented in my master thesis(which will soon
be ready) - and I hope the code will be made avalible soon.
