It sounds like what's happening is that the DHCP server is listening for
DHCP requests on both the wired and wireless interface.  There should be
a way to configure the software to only answer requests on the wireless
interface.  I'm not familiar with ChilliSpot, but my 5 minute glance at
the documentation leads me to think that you can specify a dhcp
interface in the chilli.conf config file.
