I'm trying to configure a Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access point to simply accept clients as a wireless router. I have a linksys router I use for my office but need to boost and send a single far. I can get the network SSID and attach to the Cisco Aironet 1200 Series access point but I can't get an IP address. What mode and how do I need to setup this router so that it simply has DHCP and will attach clients?

Your Aironet is going to have to be connected to your router via ethernet in order to serve IP addresses to your client machines through it.  It is not to be used as a wireless extender.  You would have to purchase a wireless extender to extend a wireless signal without an ethernet connection.  They are not terribly reliable, though.

If budget allows, look into a Cisco 2106 Wireless LAN Controller.  You can use it in conjunction with up to six access points.  It is a much better solution for providing wide area coverage.  I'm using something like it in my 36,000 sq. ft. factory.  Handoff from access point to access point as users wander around the facility is seamless.
