How do I set up a bridged network on my wifi?


I have been struggling to set up some VMs on my server. I have them set up and can run them from the host machine but they have no network connections. I realize that I need to set up a bridge network for the VMs to use. The server I am using is only connected via wifi (wlan0).

I have tried following steps in some tutorials to set up bridge and substituting wlan0 wherever they have eth0 but what I end up with is a situation where I can't connect to the wifi on the host machine and of course can't get a network connection on the VM machine.

Can someone point me in the right direction on how to get this working? I was trying to follow this:

OK. So I guess the question I should really be asking might be how do I manually configure my wifi card without having NetworkManager running?

Which virtualizer you using and what are the current network settings for (not in) the virtual machines?

I'm using kvm/qemu with virtual machine manager. The network is set to NAT but I can't get out to the Internet.

Can you test with a wired connection?

According to this article, most wireless drivers do not support bridged connections.

I don't have any first-hand experience with KVM; hopefully someone who does will help us both out.
