hi,
do you have any wireless router?
Ethernet bridge wont be able give you wireless network alone. You can connect a cisco bridge to a wireless router.

Routers are more like access points(bridge)with infrastructure mode.
So its better to use wireless router to install your wireless network. you can add ethernet bridge to expand wireless range of your wireless network.

hope this informative ...
