    What's a bridge adapter, and what does it have to do with Linux ?

    One of the things that becomes clear from skimming those links is that
    'bridge adapter' can mean different things to different people.

    You will have to provide a little more information, like 'what
    distribution linux, how is this bridge created, etc.'. One of the main differences between say RHEL/CentOS/SL and Debian-based distros is how
    things like networking are configured.

    If you mean a bridge interface like br0, configured with the brctl or
    the ip -f bridge command, you simply do the same with br0 that you
    were used to do with eth0. In your case, dhclient br0.

    If you had a working configuration for eth0 before going bridge, just
    move that configuration to br0.
