I don't understand exactly the question.
But, if you mean "when I shutdown wlan0, then change to managed mode, then I up it again and then there is no bridging", the answer is: when you shutdown an interface, it is removed from the bridge. You have to add it again:
brctl addif brX wlan0
Please send the outputs of brctl, for example:
# brctl show br0
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces br0 8000.0050c2019614 no eth0 wlan0 # brctl showmacs br0 port no mac addr is local? ageing timer 1 00:04:76:26:96:c7 no 0.03 2 00:30:65:1d:e6:3a no 2.48 1 00:40:43:05:66:00 no 5.16 2 00:50:c2:01:93:66 no 12.22 2 00:50:c2:01:96:14 yes 0.00 1 00:60:08:b3:6c:b7 yes 0.00
