I finally succeeded in configuring HostAP as I wanted.
(It was not that difficult as I expected.)
The reason why I wanted to implement this was to figure out how the
performance is affected when periodical long data is issued.

I confirmed this operation by using sniffering tools.

Follwing is the configuration scripts.

brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 wlan0
ifconfig eth0
ifconfig wlan0
ifconfig br0 x.x.x.x up
iwconfig wlan0 essid xxxx
iwconfig wlan0 channel x
ifconfig wlan0 mtu 2290

Thank you, all !!
