Are your 192.168.2/24 machines configured to use as their
default router? They don't know where is, because they 
don't see it as being on the same link. The subnet mask is used to
determine this kind of reachability.

You could probably use as your default router, as long as
you created a static route `route add 192.168.1/24', telling
the system that to get to 192.168.1/24, the next-hop is
This seems needlessly complex when you can just configure as
your default router and skip the static route configuration all

Regardless, bridging isn't going to help unless the host and the default
router have the same subnet configurations.
