Mr. Patrick,

Thanks a lot, i did exactly as said by you and the trick worked :).

I have one doubt here.

The steps we followed below says that we have configured the interfaces
wire and wireless as bridge.

My HostAP is in Master mode. Does this mean that The HOSTAP Access Point

is in BRIDGE MODE?
