An Access Point acts as a bridge, connecting whatever is on either side of it into the same
 subnet.  Meaning you can access the Internet services, and File and Printer sharing will work.
Routers are not bridges.  They will put your wireless client into its own subnet.  Even though
 the Internet will work, you won't be able to use File and Printer sharing unless you set up
 LMHOST files on all machines on your network.  Even then, Network Neighborhood (or Places)
 won't automatically find the machines on different subnets.

You can log into this device using your web browser.  Do you know the IP address of your router?  Most likely it will be http://192.168.1.1, sign in as username: "root" and password: "root" and click on the bridging tab.  From here you should be able to turn on bridging.  Post back if you see something different.

Is Zyxel Prestige 700 the exact model number?  What tabs do you have?
