WAG200G to WRT54GR networking question

    Hi there,
    I run a WAG200G to hook my ADSL line into my PC via wire and to hook up the other PC's via wireless.
    Its frankly bulitproof and has never once let me down.

    I just aquired a WRT54GR router and figured i could use it to hook up a file and print server that ive had just sitting upstairs because they have no wireless capabilities.

    I thought it would be just a matter of hooking the equipment up via rj45 plugs to the new router, setting the ssid, encryption keys, turning off DHCP and setting the ip of the router to function on the same subnet as the WAG200G.

    This doesnt appear to be the case however, for some reason the only way to get this to work is by running a cable.
    I need to effectively turn the WRT54GR into a wireless bridge instead of a router but there seems to be no simple way of acheiving this.
    Am i blatantly overlooking something here?
    Does anyone know how to get any sort of result?

    Thanks for taking the time either way.

    I doubt that a WRT54GR can act like a bridge or an AP client like WAP54G does. I suggest you use a WAP54G and a switch.
    !PS! I miss a product that can be an AP client and a switch.
