 Some examples of a WirelessEthernetBridge 
 * [WET11] 
 See EthernetBridge 
+!!Setting Up A Compaq WL200 Wireless Card as a Wireless Access Point  
+Note: These notes are [Debian] Specific.  
+# Download the latest kernel source - I used 2.4.20 at the time of writing.  
+# Grab all relevant wireless patches to your chosen kernel from [].  
+# apt-get install wireless-tools  
+# Grab hostap from []. I'm using version 2002-10-12.  
+# Grab pcmcia-cs from [], and uninstall the existing package if it's installed (apt-get remove pcmcia-cs --purge).  
+# Unpack your kernel, and patch with the wireless extensions patches. Configure it - ensure you DISABLE pcmcia support and ENABLE wireless LAN support and 802.1d ethernet bridging. Make dep bzImage modules modules_install, install the image, and update your boot loader.  
+# Boot your new kernel - makes life easier! :)  
+# Unpack pcmcia-cs and hostap. Change into the hostap source directory, and copy drivers/* into /path/to/pcmcia-cs-x.x.x  
+# Change into your pcmcia-cs directory and make config, then make all, then make install.  
+# Edit /etc/defaults/pcmcia and add PCIC_OPTS='irq_mode=1 fast_pci=1'  
+# Edit /etc/modutils/aliases and add alias wlan0 hostap_cs, then run update-modules.  
+# OK, /etc/init.d/pcmcia start should now start your WL200 in AP mode! :) You can modify the startup options in /etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts  
+# To create a bridge, modify /etc/network/interfaces:  
+auto br0%%%  
+iface br0 inet static%%%  
+ address  
+ network  
+ netmask  
+ broadcast  
+ bridge_ports wlan0 eth0%%%  
+ up \%%%  
+ /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 essid wlug && \%%%  
+ /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 channel 1 && \%%%  
+ /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 mode Master%%%  
+Hope this helps someone out there.
