I am not aware of any specific issues. That being said, I only played around with the linux wireless enough to set up my wireless. I have a reg NIC also, just wanted to get it working. At least you have a wireless card that appears to be supported. Mine only works if i use the ndiswrapper package and the windows drivers...
Are both sides able to reach the bridge? Assign an ip to the bridge device. If you can't ping that address from each side, something is wrong with your network configuration. If you can ping it from one side and not the other, take a look at that adapter and make sure it's working properly.
Check each interface, the eth0, wlan0 and br0 (or whatever your bridge device is) and make sure they are all up. If not all are up, bring up the down one.
If everything appears right, you can ping the bridge machine from both sides of the bridge and the bridge interface is up and configured properly and things still don't work.... well then you got me. Perhaps there is some issue with wlan cards and bridging or perhaps just that one
I'll see if i can make this work on my machine, however different hardware produces different results.
Hope this helps
