Question Bridge lan to wlan

[LEFT]So I would like to bridge wlan card (Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02))
and ethernet card (Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 14)) together. So far I have only been able to bridge them togethet. I have read many tutorials from net, but none of them seems to not explain how to get ip for the machine connected to bridge. I dont know what do, so Im hoping someone could give me instructions of how to do this, starting fro the bridge creatin plz. I also read from somewhere that bridging dont work whit all wlan cards, is there another way to connect the pc to net throughout another pc than the bridging?

The pc where the bridge will come is connected to wireless ADLS router that gives ip addresses whit DHCP.

I get this whit ifconfig wlan0
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:16:01:7D:51:20
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::216:1ff:fe7d:5120/64 Scope:Link
RX packets:4755 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:4018 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:3572066 (3.4 Mb) TX bytes:758741 (740.9 Kb)

The name server is
Do I have to put a dhcp server to the pc whit bridge? If yes, what kind of configuration should i use? If you nedd some more info I can give it.


bcm4318, bridge, broadcom, dhcp, internet
