Please help with bridging.
I want to bridge wi-fi and lan adapter. If I use windows bridging, my LAN clients receiving IP, gateway and DNS via 4G router DHCP and use Internet. If I use SoftPerfect internal bridging DHCP doesn't work, and manual IP settings don't work.

My net config:
4g wi-fi router(ip 192.168.0.1 mask 255.255.255.0)
netbook with wi-fi adapter(ip 192.168.0.142 via router DHCP)
and LAN card (IP and DNS auto)
I want bridge this two NIC and plug wi-fi router 2 into LAN NIC

Unfortunately the internal bridging doesn't support joining a WiFi and a wired connection.

However if you are running Windows 8, I can provide a test build of the BM software that supports the Windows bridging, so it may work.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
