I no longer need this as I have gone to a power line Ethernet solution which I was able to get close to my Linux machine.

This does not work. You cannot just add the wireless interface to the bridge. First you have to do "iw wlan0 set 4addr on". Then you have to make wpa_supplicant aware of the bridge. Then, apparently you have to do some ebtables stuff as well.

I've been made aware of these things on other posts found through Google searches.

However, nothing works.

I've been doing system administration for years so I know my way around Linux, but I'm not a networking master ninja.

I need some real help here.

I can't be the only person who has ever done this!

This will not work for me as I do not want a NAT. I want everything on the 172.31.60.x network.

I've got a Fedora workstation on my internal NATted network, 172.31.60.X

It's connected via wireless, on 172.31.60.205

I want to extend the SAME network out to a ethernet switch through the wired connection.

My thought was I would assign 172.31.60.206 to the wired connection, and somehow be able to route other 172.31.60.X IP's on the switch through to the wireless to send the traffic.

I've tried reading up on bonding, so both the wireless and wired would be 172.31.60.205, but I don't think that will work in this case.

I'm just not sure which is the best way to go.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
