Hi ,
Can anybody share the experience of bridging the
HostAP to wired network? 
wireless interfaceis  "wlan0 ", and I have another
wired interface " eth1" 
When I start bridging by 

brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth1
brctl addif br0 wlan0

ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig eth1 up
ifconfig br0 up 
the configurations are set.

but when i look for wlan Ap using command "iwconfig"
there is no trace of wlan0 AP.

only when explicitly i am running command "iwconfig
wlan0 " only the wlan0 AP info is available.

Can anybody tell me where is the mistake???
