Is it possible to create a wireless bridge connection (br0) for any wireless nic (wlan0) using nmcli tool.?

End of the day system should have master bridge-connection(br0) that uses wlan0 nic as it's bridge-slave.


This is not possible.

"Note that a bridge cannot be established over Wi-Fi networks operating in Ad-Hoc or Infrastructure modes. This is due to the IEEE 802.11 standard that specifies the use of 3-address frames in Wi-Fi for the efficient use of airtime."
