I don't think bridging of wireless and ethernet works, why not just
route the packets! use iptables to setup nat if you need
Indeed bridging with wireless is not a good idea: I experienced it !
Nevertheless, I have not yet understand in detail the suggested alternative:
is there an howto somewhere about it ?
Thanks in advance,
connection, everythings seems OK, but if you tried to ping the
cellphone from the laptop, ARP requests will not get any answer:
# ifconfig br0
br0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:16:d3:f5:85:9f
inet addr:192.168.10.1 Bcast:192.168.10.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

# brctl show
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
br0 8000.0016d3f5859f no eth0
tcpdump will show the ARP request message again and again, this
behavior is different from MS Windows bridging. Could anyone tell me
How did you set up the bridge? Show us your interfaces file.
