No, a bridge is effectively a transparent device on the network
joining the two parts together. The Cisco gateway is (from what you
describe) giving out addresses in the 192.168.0.x range and they get
passed straight through the bridge without modification. To probe the
router just use 192.168.0.1 whichever side of he bridge you are.
