Bridging interfaces on arduino yun

Hi I am trying to use my yun as a wireless bridge (among other things). I have connected it to my wifi network successfully. I then go to "interfaces" and create a bridge between "my ssid" & Eth1. When I press save and apply, the yun says applying changes, please wait. It then drops off my wifi network and disappears. I have to do a 30 second reset and start all over again.

Am i doing something wrong? does the yun even support this? I had assumed this would be rather trival.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!
