wicd doesn't support bridges

I do need wlan bridge, but only at home.
The simplest way to do this seems to use a VLAN on the wifi.
This way wicd can be left alone.
This VLAN is then bridged to the main lan on the router.

# router
vconfig add wlan0 11
ifconfig wlan0.11 up
brctl addif br-lan wlan0.11

# laptop
vconfig add wlan0 11
ifconfig wlan0.11 up
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 wlan0.11
ifconfig br0 up

The bridge on the laptop doesn't need an IP address.
( It behaves as a network switch. )


Actually this needs two different IP spaces on the laptop side it
seems.

Then I run into a problem that wlan0 (ath5k) can't be bridged..
Hmm.. looks like routing is the only alternative.
