I also faced the same problem with my packet filtering bridge. I wanted plug in a third NIC and assign an IP to in in order to perform remote administration from within the LAN. But I have come to the conclusion that if you start to bridge ( read put up a gateway) between two NICS, then it is not possible to use a third NIC to get things done as you say.
