eth0 to wlan0 Bridging part 2

If you have a wifi stick that does not support Master Mode (also called AP Mode, or Promiscuous Mode)

There is an option to use Proxy Arp.     Yeme turned me on to this document

https://wiki.debian.org/BridgeNetworkConnectionsProxyArp

We have this option working in piCore as well   (minus the avahi-daemon)   I'll be submitting the extensions with programs needed for this.

parprouted has a problem that needs to be resolved.   It currently requires the use of the executable program "ip"   which is in extension iproute2.   But it has the path hardcoded to /sbin, where as the program is installed into /usr/local/sbin.   Easy correction, but I also want to see if I can do it without using an external os call.   Anyway.   if you are in need of a bridge, it seems that we have a good option for any wifi stick.

AP mode != promiscuous mode. One can be supported without the other.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
