so I use HermesAP-0.2. Now, I have installed heremesAP and made it work.
Other PC's wireless device can connect to my wireless interface.
My problem is how to make my AP like bridge, so that others connected to my

However I am newbie on wireless and network. So I need more detail to do
Hope people can teach me how to do that or where have information about
