Cisco Wireless bridge question

Hello,

I have two Cisco 1250's, one setup as root with wireless client, and the other as non-root with wireless client. I have put the root in the main office, and put the non-root in the secondary office that is less than 100 feet away. I can from my wireless connection in the secondary office, connect to the non-root and get access to the main building. I than plug in a Cisco switch into the gigabit interface of the non-root, and I cannot get an IP address. I'm using the BVI interface on both AP. Can anyone let me know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Have you tried setting a static IP on the Switch ?

Yes, I have set a static IP address on VLAN 100. VLAN 100 is our corp network subnet, and both AP have  VLAN 100 setup as well. Do you think I might need to check and see if the gigabit interface is on VLAN 100 on the APs?

Thanks

Thanks for your help, it turns out the issue was on the switch, and not on the AP like I thought. It was the STP running on the switch that was causing the problem.
