The bridge works when Network A and Network B are set to the same subnet. It stops working when I change Network B to a different subnet. Is it possible to have Network A and Network B be different Subnets and still work?
The bridges I'm familiar with are used to partition subnets. If you want to make network b a different subnet, you should connect it to a router and configure the router to route packets from that subnet to the Internet. More advanced bridges and switches may be able to do some routing too, but we don't know what exactly your setup is or what kind of bridge you have. Do you have a manual for it?
The work of connecting between different networks/subnetworks are that of the router.
A bridge is used to connect two or more segments of the same network. An ethernet switch is actually a multiport bridge.
In your case I would say that the problem is about configuring your router correctly.
