The 802.11 WiFi standards do not support transparent layer 2 / ethernet bridging which can break protocols such as DHCP. Various vendors use the 802.11 four address frame packet format / WDS to implement transparent bridging, but as there is no standard method interoperability between vendors is hit-and-miss.

Mikrotik support various client / station modes, see ... tion_Modes - if you have a single wired device attached to a station connected to a third-party AP then station-pseudobridge may work.
