Hi All,

When adding my second interface using brctl on the 2.6.6 kernel I receive the
error that a interface with the same source address within the bridge exist.
That's correct both wlan0 and wlan0wds0 carry the same hw-address but my other
accesspoint with kernel 2.4 doesn't complain about that. Is someone working on
this or has anyone a solution for this?

Thank you,
