many thanks for Your respond.

YI do it because I want control traffic between STA's in my LinuxBox,
by tc in the kernel. Bridge packet in hostap is out of soft control ;-(

>From hostap_ap.h:
        int bridge_packets; /* send packet to associated STAs directly to the
                             * wireless media instead of higher layers in the
                             * kernel */

JM> Do you have your own code (e.g., modified Linux bridge code)
No, it is standard kernel 2.4.22 without bridge soft.
wlan0 is Senao SL-2511CD+Ext2:
PRIID: id=0x0015 v1.1.1
STAID: id=0x001f v1.7.4 (station firmware)

JM> somewhere in the kernel or are you planning to use IP routing
I plan do it by routing table ;-)
My kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface U     0      0        0 eth0   U     0      0        0 wlan0

Have You any idea?

Sorry for my English.
