That doesn't seem to work either...maybe I am doing something wrong..

# ifconfig wlan1 192.168.10.39 up

# ping 192.168.10.10 (gateway)
PING 192.168.10.10 (192.168.10.10) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 192.168.10.10: icmp_seq=1 ttl=255 time=8.12 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.10.10: icmp_seq=2 ttl=255 time=4.33 ms

#ifconfig wlan0 0.0.0.0 up
#ifconfig wlan1 0.0.0.0 up
#brctl addbr br0
#brctl addif br0 wlan0
#brctl addif br0 wlan1
#ifconfig br0 192.168.10.39 up

ping 192.168.10.10 (gateway) from box associated with wlan0 and get
timeout....
