Cisco Linksys e1000- dd-wrt

I have cisco Linksys e1000, I have upgraded the firmware to dd-wrt.
this router is in the 1st floor fo my house
I have AT&T wireless in the second floor to which my laptop connects to internet now.
I would like to configure the cisco Linksys e1000 as a bridge so that I can connect through it to internet when I am in the first floor.
I have opened the web page of the linksys, it shows now dd-wrt.com, under the wireless tab I see the:
 wireless=AP
wireless Network mode=mixed
.....
.....
Network configuration=Bridged

So how can I go from here to get my PC connected to internet when I am in the first floor

Thanks

I did not check the version of the DD-WRT, but if I manage to configure it at least as standard bridge with the AT&T wireless router, it will be fine , since I can connect my laptop to the DD-WRT with a cable.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I followed this link above and set linksys as a Client.

how do I verify it is set up as a client properly?

it looks like there is improvement, since I can online when the linksys adapter is enabled.
but when I telnet to linksys and ping it doesn't give anything, the cursor just goes to the next line. how can I verify linksys[dd-wrt] is going through the ATT then to internet?

Correct it s dd-wrt.
I can see it on the ATT router GUI. One thing I want check if i can ping a web site on the internet as you suggested, but could not achieve that.

If I connect to att and run ping, I am sure it will work, that 's from where I get internet connection.
I want to make sure dd-wrt is connecting to internet via ATT router (the primary). I know the ATT router GUI is seeing the 192.168.1.1 (which is the ip address that I use to get to dd-wrt GUI)

I just though telnetting to dd-wrt, might help test by pingging internet web sites, but it doesn't return anything.

The reason I am doing this, because eventually I need to plug dd-wrt to regular cisco 2600 Router on a different floor from ATT router , then plug Cisco switch 3550 to Cisco 2600 router, and plug some PCs to Cisco 3550 Switch, and get those PCs connected to internet.

My initial question described that I needed to use the dd-wrt on a diferent floor
now when I am connected to ATT router only , I can get to internet web sites, also when I plug the dd-wrt to my computer , the local area connection starts identifying the network then it goes enabled, at this point I have ATT and dd-wrt both enabled and can get to internet.

Now I feel like if I connect the dd-wrt to cisco 2600 router on the first floor, then cisco 3550 switch to cisco 2600 ten some PCs to cisco 3550 switch, those PCs will be able to get internet too.
the first floor is a cisco lab, I want to simulate real environment where they have the internet router connected to the CISCO router--->to Cisco Switch---to PCs. then the PCS will go to internet.

ATT router IP 192.68.1.254
dd-wrt IP 192.168.1.1


Connection looking in the future  is:

Internet-->ATT----dd-wrt---Cisco 2600 Router ---Cisco 3550 Switch ---PCs

for now I have Internet ---> ATT--->dd-wrt---PC
on my PC I can connect to internet, but I can't verify if it s going through dd-wrt-->ATT
OR it is  going straight through ATT skipping dd-wrt.
