I am attempting to temporarily connect two networks, one a wifi and one an ethernet, via a Linux bridge with my wifi enabled laptop. I setup the bridge as such (eth0 ethernet, ath0 wifi
ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
ifconfig ath0 0.0.0.0
brctl addbr wtl0
brctl addif wtl0 eth0
brctl addif wtl0 ath0
iwconfig ath0 essid "mywifi" key restricted "***"
ifconfig wtl0 up
ifconfig wtl 192.168.0.165 netmask 255.255.255.0
I can now ping machines on the ethernet side but not the wireless side. The bridge lists both interfaces in
and my wifi signal strength meter reads fairly strong.
Why won't my bridge connect over wifi
