I've seen the caveat that the bridge and the access point should be the
same brand, so you might want to take this into account.  Apparently
this configuration is a bit non-standard and vendor-dependent.  My
Linksys WAP54G, for example, warns that the access point also must be a
Linksys for it to work in bridge or ap-client mode.
