Using Fedora 22 (Gnome 3.16.2), I would like to setup a bridge to bridge my WIFI connection to my ethernet port. The goal is to connect another device on my ethernet port that runs a DHCP client, receiving an IP from a DHCP server in the network (NAT enabled).

I tried to follow this guide here but unfortunately my client does not connect properly. (Error: It doesn't receive DHCPOFFERS, port 67).

How can I understand what is going wrong? Does anyone know a working solution to setup a bridge using brctl? I could maybe try to copy settings from my existing virbr0 and adjust them. Don't necessarily need GUI like NetworkManager.
