I have set up an access point using hostap. My laptop also has an ethernet
conenction. My machine has static IP .I want to establish
bridging between wlan and wired lan.

I used the following commands to setup the bridge

brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 wlan0

ifconfig eth0
ifconfig wlan0

ifconfig br0 up

After these steps I cannot access network even from the access point
machine. Also I cannot access network from any machine on wlan.

Am I missing something?
Do I need to setup gateway or routes on access point or other machines?

My configuration

access point on Dell Inspiron, kernel 2.4.19, hostap 09/12, pcmcia cs-

Thanks in advance
