I don't have such a setup myself so I can't help you here. I
wouldn't use bridging with the LAN though. With newer SuSEfirewall2
you can define a new zone for the WLAN and then use normal routing
for WLAN-Inet and WLAN-LAN. You can also abuse the DMZ rules for
that purpose if you don't have a real DMZ.
