wireless bridge

This is what I have:

                                          R3
                                           |
R1 <-> wireless bridge <-> R2 <-> switch2 <-> Internal network(10.10.10.0/24)

R2 has serial0 connecting to R3 and fa0 connecting to switch2

This is what I want it to be:
 R3
  |
R1 <-> wireless bridge <-> R2 <-> switch2 <-> Internal network(10.10.10.0/24)

R1 serial0 will be connecting to R3

Can users in R1 get to the internal network through the wireless? I am not sure but I don't think they can because there is no route.

Nope, don't think so. It's a bridge - wireless or no, a straight layer 2 device.

Users connecting to R1 and R2 have IP addresses from the same subnet 10.10.10.0/24. I think it will work because the bridge wireless is just layer 2. So If a user behind R3 wants to reach the internal network 10.10.10.0/24, it can go through R1, then R2, then to the internal network. Does it make sense?

Sorry, cctually this is the correct configuration
Existing:
                                                                  PC3<->R3<->R2
                                                                                        |
Switch0 <-> wireless bridge<->wireless bridge<->R1<->switch1<->PC1
  |
 PC0

Desire configuration:
  PC3<->R3<->R2
             |
            R1<->Switch0 <-> wireless bridge<->wireless bridge<->switch1<->PC1
            |
          PC0

In the existing configuration, PC3 can access PC1 without any problem. If I move to the desire configuration, can PC3 still access PC1?
PC0 and PC1 are on the same subnet, 10.10.10.0/24

Thanks
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
