I know there is lot of threads about bridges and how to make them and manage them but still i haven't reached a goal.

So i need bridge between wlan and ethernet but mean while i need connect to hotspot adapter which will gain access to internet .

so basicaly scheme ir something like this

TP-LINK_M5(hotspot)<---coneection--->pc(wlan adapter)<---bridge--->pc(eth)<--cable-->voip adapter

I haven't tried with windows does it even works. Before that i tried with another tp-link router which had WDS but network died quite fast.

I know i can reach goal using packet forwarding but i am interested in this option...

Both my cards.

    Do you really need bridge? - Bridging Wifi to Ethernet on Ubuntu not working or you can share the wlan connection (MASQUERADE ) through wi-fi Ubuntu 13.10 - Share wireless internet connection through Ethernet – Web-E May 24 '14 at 13:17
  • Well it would look nice that all is under one network like but thats not significant. I tried share but there is issue. i can ping from router which ar located in ethernet side but from hotspot side i can't ping ethernet network and internet is not working in ethernet side. And i looked in hotspot options i can't set ip forward or anything similar to it. – rudis May 24 '14 at 18:46
