Yep, that's exactly what I meant. I tried giving my bridge, vbr0 an IP 
address using:

   ifconfig vbr0,

But I am unable to ping it. In order to get ping working before, when I 
was pinging from host to host, I had to set up the default entry on each 
host to be their outgoing interface, because it wouldn't work with the 
routers incoming interface. Should the default entry for the hosts be 
vbr0's new IP address?
