So, have any of you had great success using the Express as the main base station and Brand X router as the bridge? After a lot of searching it would seem that I'm doing this ass backwards. Most people buy the Express to extend but since I figured it would be easier to let the Admin Assistant do everything for me, I did everything I thought I had to do to my make Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 work as a bridge. Needless to say, it's not working. Anyone done this? have pointers? P.S. The Buffalo is set to Bridge, instead of Auto. I have disabled all Encryption on both routers. Both routers are on the same channel. Everything else is automatic. The Express gets to the last step of connection and then fails. Both routers work flawlessly otherwise.
