Proper setup of wireless bridge

There is a total of 9 WAP2000, 7 in one building and 2 in the other. 1-6 are standard wap, 7 is setup to bridge to 8 in building 2. In building 2, 8(bridge) and 9 (wap) are connected to a switch.  When connected to building 1 I can ping 1-7 but not 8 or 9. Now When connected to building 2 I can ping 8 but can't see 1-7. How can I make this work?

What IP address does each of the 9 WAPs have, and are they all getting them via DHCP?

Do they all have the same SSID?

Most Linksys wireless routers/APs offer a Wireless Isolation option, but this one has 2 options... isolation between SSIDs and isolation within SSID. Are you using either (or both) of those options?

Did you change any of the 9 units' VLAN ID?

The ip address for all 9 are static (no DHCP) with the same SSID that is set to Isolation Between only.

We've set both 7 and 8 as bridge to each other, but can't ping across to each other. Set up two new WAP2000 just like 7 and 8 with different ips. These also can't see each other.

Got it working after setting it to "isolation between SSID" only.
