Wireless bridge and secondary address for backup

In my place, we have 2 offices connected over 64kbps using 2 2610. Each one is using different subnets. I want to connect them using the new 350 bridges. I want to create another subnet for the WLAN. I tried to add a secondary address on the ethernet port but it cant even ping the bridge, but i can ping a workstation? Why not with the bridge?

If i can get the secondary ethernet address to ping the bridge and even ping to the secondary ethernet address of the next router, then i should be able to have a floating static addrress for both routers for redundancy. The primary link will be the WLAN then the secondary would be the leased line. I hope im on the right track. Anybody care to help?

Re: Wireless bridge and secondary address for backup

So i thing the best way to use the both links is to run a EIGRP. You must configure a load balancing with "variance" command or use "backup interface" & "backup load" to specify interface and load and % for activation. Another good decision i think is to run policy based routing for using interfaces for different kind of traffic.
