    Wireless Bridge problems

    So the setup is a D-Link wireless router upstairs, an airlink wireless AP I have setup as a bridge in the basement , all that works fine, but I have several things in the basement (2 computers, and an Xbox 360) So I bought another D-Link router, just a wired one this time, to connect the AP to the router to plug everything into downstairs. When I connect the AP to the router nothing works, I get IP address, but no MAC address, on either the computers or the XBOX. Without the router however, whatever the AP is plugged into works fine. Can I not plug a router into a bridge or what?

    Thanks

    You want to stay away from a router behind another router..you end up with double NAT'ing..and possible IP conflicts.

    How is the 2nd router setup?
