What is it that you are attempting to accomplish by bridging the LAN and your built-in wifi card? I'm confused... your LAN is the connection that you already have with your Router or Modem. The built in WiFi card being Bridged has no benefit to my knowledge. If you explain your intent we may be able to better assist.

(I apologize for the multiple edits)
