That's a bit difficult configuration. Bridge is indeed likely to have
issues with bridging two interfaces with different MTUs (or at least the
packets to wired Ethernet would get dropped/truncated). Why would you
like to send longer packets in the wireless side? You would need to
describe your goals and system configuration with a bit more details to
make it possible for others to answer this question..
