wifi to lan bridge problem


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
Code:
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
Code:
brctl showstp wtl0
and my wifi signal strength meter reads fairly strong.

Why won't my bridge connect over wifi
