Two networks - Bridge Problem

    Hi all,

    This is my first post, and after reading a lot and trying even more (with no sucess) I decided to ask for some help.

    I have two networks. One (N1) with a WRT54GS (fw 3.37.2) that as modem connection to an ADSL ISP that I want to share to the second network.
    The second (N2) use a WRT54G (fw 3.03.9).

    the Modem IP is

    N1 with IP: (sub Gateway

    N2 with IP: (sub Gateway

    N1 and N2 using WPA PSK.

    I'm using a WAP54G as a bridge between the two. But I can't ping from one network to the other. I don't know what's wrong, so I have some questions :

    1) What is the N2 router gateway address correct value (, or

    2) What is the N2 router correct configuration gateway or router ?

    3) Do I need to define any static routes in N2 routers ?

    4) Where should I connect the lan cable from the WAP54G in the N2 router (LAN or WAN) ?

    5) Is there any special configuration for the WAP54G that I may be missing (I'm using the same SSID, channel and security settings from the N1 routers)

    I tried using the WAP54G in AP client mode and it worked fine. In that mode my notebook could get a DHCP IP from N1 routers...but with the bridge things get a bit more complicated.

    Does any one suggest a different global solution (like just one network-using the same hardware) ? I yes, please describe.

    Thank you very much for the help.

    Best regards,

    you will need static routes on both routers.
