need a bridge?

I would like to creat a AP to share my internet connection. I followed a gentoo documentation.
But I wonder do I need to creat a bridge?
Can't I forward my connection with iptable in order to filter it?
I configure /et/hostap/hostap.conf and when I try to launch it I have this mistake :
* Starting wlan0
* Configuring wireless network for wlan0
* no access points found
* Couldn't find any access points on wlan0
* Failed to configure wireless for wlan0 [ !! ]
* ERROR: cannot start hostapd as net.wlan0 could not start
Is it beceause I didn't activate the bridge?
