    From the WAP54G User Manual.

    Wireless Bridge - If you are trying to make a wireless connection between two wired networks, select Wireless
    Bridge. This mode connects two physically separated wired networks with two access points.

    Roughly :

    A bridge is a way to connect 2 network with a low level layer (physical) consequently the MAC addresses are used.

    A gateway is an other way to connect 2 network but with a higher layer level (protocol).
