Kvm using wireless bridge, how

Hi all. After some problems with centos and kvm I decided install FC13.

I have 2 guest. I am using the default configuration, and each guest can access to internet using my wireless card broadcom bcm4312 in the host.

As I am using my laptop to learn and test about kvm,so I dont have static ip.

I have:

eth0 (disconnected)

I was wondering if it is possible to do a bridge using my wlan. I have search in forums and google and almost all I found is about bridge using ethernet.

I dont have /etc/sysconfig/network-script/ifcfg-wlan (Onle ifcfg-eth0)

F13 automatic detected my wireless.. so I didnt compile any driver.

What can I do?. (I have read a lot but almost everthing is for ethernet)

The VM sees a generic Ethernet card, so that end is not an issue. I have successfully bridged the wireless on laptops before, it's as simple as running a bridge script, usually. But the host still needs to be connected to the AP (though it doesn't need an IP address) to be able to have the VM have network connectivity, you won't be able to control the wireless card or what network you are connected to from the VM that will all have to be done in the host.
