Need help building a WLAN AP.

PrzemekG_PrzemekG_ Posts: 595Member
Hi,
I want to build a WLAN ap on a PC. Access Points are realy strange things. They are totaly transparent (no NAT no MAC change), they work like a switch. A standar AP is have an ethernet and one WLAN port. The problem is
they share the same IP. I thought that a bridge would help, but when I add wlan0 to a bridge, it disconnects.

Anybody have an idea what can I do ?

P.S. Is brctl works with 2.6.8 (it didn't with 2.6.6)?
