I have a little embedded ARM box on its way in the mail and this bastard is going to have three interfaces:

1. eth0
2. eth1
3. wlan0

My goal is to make a router with WAN and LAN interfaces. Can I just say that...

WAN is eth0
LAN is eth1 bridged with wlan0

...?

Might be done but best is to check if it works. I've run into troubles bridging or aggregating wireless and wired interfaces on Gentoo machines and it's a matter of firmware. Do as if it were only wired interfaces. There's just a catch if you're using wpa_supplicant for there's a parameter -b that must be used when the controlling interface is bridged. Post here if you need more info.
