Almost none of the wlan cards supports bridging since it's kind of ethernet 
technology and
wireless cards operate in whole different physical layer. But you can 
create ip over ip
tunnels (vpn or something like that) and bridge the virtual devices. That 
might cost a
little performance, but it works after all. Try vtun for example;
