The scenario is really simple. I am currently having one adsl router which is Aztech ADSL2+ Wireless 4-Port Router by my ISP (Etisalat) which is having AR7WRD Firmware and another one is a wireless Bubble Gini Router which is having firmware similar to DDR-WRT. Now i tried to make my Gini as CLIENT BRIDGE and configured with the same wireless encryption as my main Aztec router disabling dhcp server on Gini. But i don't know where am i going wrong and i am still not able to make a connection between two wireless routers. Do i have to make any settings in my main wireless router as well ?

The purpose of connecting two wireless router is because i am having my main router outside my room and i have got a voip device where i need to connect it through the internet and i cannot pull the cable till my room from the main router. So i was wondering if i can get the dhcp by another wireless router and connect my voip device and other devices on cable
