Netctl bridge with static ip


At the moment, I have a static IP ethernet connection with netctl that works fine (i.e. I can access the internet).

Now, I'm trying to set up a software access point as described here: … cess_Point
Hostapd works fine, but I'm unable to create a working bridge. I need my wireless devices to have an IP in the same network that the computer I am creating the AP with is connected to. So I can't use NAT, right?
However, when I'm creating the bridge as described on or I can no longer access the internet from my computer, but it does work with the wireless devices. The first article mentions something about man netctl and /etc/resolv.conf but I wasn't able to find a solution to this problem. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!
