Are you trying to share the internet connection? If so, why are you trying to bridge them? What is your goal?

i want to do the bandwidth management using "tc", therefore in PC 1 i have to create a bridge. PC 1 will do the bandwidth alocation (Linux box). And PC2 can get access to the internet according to the tc qdisc rule set in PC1...(PC 2 is connected to PC 1's eth1)....( therfore, i cant said that PC 1 is sharing the connection with PC 2, because PC 1 act as a medium or intermediate between router and PC2).

my english not so good..therefore...interpretation got some problem..hope u understand what i mean. Thanks.

So what IP and Gateway address should i set in PC 2???or is there anything i miss in setting the bridge?
