First of all, I don't think you can use bridging with wireless NIC.
It's a wireless limitation.
What you can do is use bridge+NAT (I prefer this one) or use routing.
Example of bridge + NAT is what libvirt does. It creates a new bridge,
virbr0, and setup NAT rules automatically. You then assign domUs to
use virbr0 bridge.
