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.

Looks like all you are doing is moving R3.

So if users in R1 are already connecting to your internal network, then everything should stay the same.

If you put in a route in R1 to point to the internal network then they can reach it... and make sure to add a route on R2 to point back to R1.

If you don't put a route in, then they won't be able to talk to each other.

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

Yes, the wireless bridge acts simply as a regular ethernet cable, or switch. So everything will be the same for you.
