You seem to want to send frames between two STAs, but you disable the
mechanism used for doing it.. How are you planning to bridge those
packets, if you disable this functionality in the Host AP driver? Do you
have your own code (e.g., modified Linux bridge code) somewhere in the
kernel or are you planning to use IP routing (which would not work in
the setup you mentioned since broadcast packets are not routed)?
