    I have an adsl modem/router upstairs connected to the net and my pc downstairs. My wireless card is terrible and drops the connection constantly so i decided to use the spare router i have lying around to make a bridge. Now as far as i know i have everything set up right. They share the same ssid, wpa key, channel, bridge has dns as the gateway of main router, im able to connect fine and access the main router from downstairs, but no internet connection. Other devices connected through wireless are able to use the net. Also now if i try to connect my pc directly to the main with a wireless card the internet no longer works, even though it was fine yesterday.
    Im going to attach screens in my next post as i cant do it on what im currently on. Thanks.

    Here are the screens, though useless now I think as if i boot into ubuntu rather than windows the internet works completly fine. Must be a setting I changed in windows whilst trying to get it to work. Sorry and thanks anyway.
