you don't need IPaddr for either Ethernet Interface or Wireless Interface.
Create a bridge , add these two interfaces into, bring it up

ifconfig eth0
ifconfig wlan0
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 wlan0
ifconfig br0 up

Then request IPaddr for eth0
    dhclient eth0
You should have an IPaddr and netmask from your dhcp server. Assign these
numbers to your br0 and things should work as you wish
