A layer 2 bridge connects two physical network segments to create the 
illusion of a single layer 2 network. In general, you have a single IP 
subnet sitting on top of a layer 2 network. Think of a bridge as a
2-port ethernet switch.

If you want a single layer 2 network, try readdressing the 
192.168.2/24 side to be on the 192.168.1/24 subnet. 

If you need different subnets, you'll want to configure *routing* and
not bridging (See: handbook/network-routing.html).

Good luck,
