is your wireless box set as just an access point with DHCP relay enabled? you want the first router (internet) to handle DHCP and the access point to pass it through to the clients
Jay hit it on the nail. You have to tell the router not to be a router


I solved my problem, disconnect the port wan, and the Router wireless connect to a port of the switch and I could connect the clients wireless

thank forum ,
