Hi,

I have a raspberry pi, a wipi wifi dongle, an old HP Network printer and raspbian installed.  

I want to create a CLIENT BRIDGE. The pi will be connected on the enterprise wifi network and the printer will be connected with a cable to the pi. 

I have 3 weeks of testing done while looking at all the tutorials available on the web with no luck. Since I'm a windows guy (13 years as a network admin) I'm going back to the basics. What do I need in linux (application) to achieve this?

My ideal setup would be:
- printer on the same subnet as the wifi (no dhcp done by the pi)
- printer with a static ip

What I know so far:
- I know that I'm able to connect to my wifi with the wipi dongle
- I know that the dongle is able to be configured in AP mode

Thanks
