Unhappy Make a wireless access point with WLI-CB-AMG54 in KDE


I have a Buffalo AirStation WLI-CB-AMG54 and it's running with help from madwifi on a Presario 2100 on Fedora Core 7 KDE.

I want to make my laptop into an unencrypted wireless access point for wireless devices in my home, but when I try to make a bridge with these commands:


ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0 up
ifconfig ath0 0.0.0.0 up
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 ath0

eth0 loses connectivity.

Is this the wrong approach or am I missing a step?

Oh yeah

Forgot to mention I use my active eth0 IP and assign a 192.168.*.* in place of the 0.0.0.0s when I run

ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0 up
ifconfig ath0 0.0.0.0 up
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 ath0
