Ah ok :(

I would be happy to know why, briefly. Is it a limitation in the
wireless connection or a limitation in the operating system (FreeBSD)?

I've used some bridged guests on Mac OS X and vmware fusion but I don't
remember if I used the ethernet or the wireless interface.

To J.D.Bronson: no mac authentication here, thanks for the "shot in the
dark" anyway.

So I will try to setup a vpn between the host and the guest.

Thanks, Regards.
