How to configure bridge group on a Cisco 1811 router to allow 802.11

Hi !

I'm used to configure cisco 861w routers where I just need to put an IP address at the interface wlan-ap0 and then access the built-in access point by typing "service-module wlan-ap0 session" but it does not seems to work the same way with the cisco 1811 router.

I think I need to do a bridge group but I absolutely don't understand it because no one ever teach me about it. So basically this question is about "BRIDGE GROUP" What are they for and how to use it. Also if some one could provide a simple configuration template to allow the AP to simply connect to VLAN1.

Thank You !

@donjohnston : Where do I set the subnet ? At the VLAN, at the interface or at the bridge group ?

@craigbeck : Thank you for your link
Bridging is a layer function. There is no IP address.

If you want to route to/from a bridge group, you have to create a BVI (Bridged Virtual Interface). Basically the equivalent of a VLAN interface. The IP address get assigned there.
 
No probs Rubicon2009, thanks for the points!
