Stephen,

I am not sure I understand this.

My script looks like this

ifconfig wlan0 0.0.0.0
ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
brctl addbr mybridge
brctl addif eth0
brctl addif wlan0
#ifconfig mybridge 192.168.1.136 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
ifconfig mybridge up

Should I be waiting before I run the ifconfig mybridge up?

Oliver
