I am trying to setup a wifi access point with my Ubuntu server, everything "seems" to be good since I got a better wifi radio (long story).

But now I am a little confused, when my Android phone tries to associate with the AP it is able to with no problem but then it cannot get an IP address from my DHCP server.

I have tried messing with firewall rules, nothing...

I tried making a bridge interface as per what I am told I had to do. ( Not sure if i did it right though).

What I am trying to do if make the wireless interface an extention of my eth0 network. Am I on the right track or am I going about the wrong way?
