Change your DHCP Client from "wlan1" to "bridge-local" and eliminate your NAT rule. If you have a DHCP Server set you should disable it. This should allow your cellular modem to give devices on the bridge IP's to devices on the bridge in the range you need.

You have two ways to achieve it.

First method, as the previous member suggested, (Bridge mode)

1. you have to carry out system reset without any configuration,
2. Create a bridge
3. Add all the ports to the above bridge
4. click wireless tap for wlan1 and carry out the scan the SSID that you want to connect with (make sure that you have correct SSID password)

with the above steps, you will be able to connect the mobile WiFi device with the same network segment.

The second method--Router Mode

1. You have detach "wlan1" from the bridge
2. Create an DHCP client for wlan1
3. Click wlan1 in wireless tab, scan the SSID that you want to connect (set the profile such that correct SSID password is entered)
4. If wlan1 is successfully connected then set the firewall-NAT (SRCNAT to wlan1 interface with masquerade action"
5. You have to crate a virtual AP from wlan1 and tied to router bridge.

All your mobile devices have to connect the new virtual AP.
