This is my problem .

I need a good interfaces file to see how you all have it set up. THis
is mine and it doesn not work. THanks

# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
# automatically added when upgrading
auto lo
#iface lo inet loopback
#auto eth1_rename

iwpriv wlan0 wds_add  00:0F:B5:93:F9:67

brctl addbr br0
brctl addif wlan0wds0
brctl addif wlan0
brctl addif wlan0wds0
brctl addif eth1_rename ifconfig br0 up

ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig wlan0wds up
ifconfig eth1_rename up

i get this error

 /etc/init.d/networking restart
Reconfiguring network interfaces.../etc/network/interfaces:9: misplaced option
ifdown: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"
/etc/network/interfaces:9: misplaced option
