Hello nasemabdullaa,

A lot of access points won't allow more than one client when used in Access Point Client mode. Can you verify if one of the the troubling computers can access the internet if connected directly to your router by cable? If it does, you might want to check with Dlink if a different firmware might add options for multiple clients.
If it doesn't, you'll have to search for another solution, many wireless bridges do give you the option to bridge multiple computers to a wireless network and so your best option in that case might be to get yourself a different device.

nasemabdullaa,

That depends on the specifications of the Access Point, I've tried to find information on the DWL2100 but couldn't find really relevant information. You might want to try it. Keep in mind that when you set an Access Point to bridge mode, you can't connect Wireless computers to it anymore as it'll only communicate with the other Access Point. So in case you need also wireless access directly, you might have to setup an extra Access Point for them to associate with.

nasemabdullaa,

Not completely what I mean, as far as I could see your current setup is the following:
Router => DWL2100 as AP => DWL2100 as AP-client => Switch

You can change this to the following:
Router => DWL2100 as Bridge => DWL2100 as Bridge => Switch

When you use this setup, no wireless computers can connect to any of the access points anymore as they only communicate to each other to make a connection between the switch and the router.
Any computer connected to the switch should be able to access the router (and the internet) through that wireless bridge.

Regards,

LucF

p.s. I just noticed in the manual of your AP => ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dwl2100AP/Manual/dwl2100AP_manual_200.zip that the access point has a function called "WDS with AP", I've not used this setup on any access point before, but in your case it might be the solution to overcome the problem I've described with only Bridging.
