Bug Description

Followed the Bridging guide verbatim at https://help.ubuntu.com/stable/serverguide/network-configuration.html did not create a working bridged network:
sudo apt-get -y install bridge-utils
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
#START
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto br0
iface br0 inet static
        address 192.168.1.12
        network 192.168.1.0
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        broadcast 192.168.1.255
        gateway 192.168.1.1
        bridge_ports eth0 wlan0
        bridge_fd 9
        bridge_hello 2
        bridge_maxage 12
        bridge_stp off
#END

sudo ifup br0

The 192.168.1.12 IP address was not consumed by another device at the time of attempting this. This is preventing me from instituting a wired > wireless USB dongle > WAP environment.
