I don’t think my wired <-> wireless bridge is working after all: although, after many hours fighting with the setup, it seems stable.
But, fundamentally, it would appear that the chipset on all wireless cards except for the Prism based ones, is not able to properly handle packets passed over the bridge and so won’t let devices associate with the network via the wireless card.
At least, that is my understanding of what is going on.
