I'm trying to set up a client bridge but cannot get seem to get internet access from the bridge. I assume it's a subnet problem but can't pin down what I'm doing wrong.

I"ll preface this by saying I'm a novice in all this and don't really understand subnets, etc. That said, I have a Belkin F7D8301 as my primary router and the default gateway is 192.168.2.1. I'm trying to use a Linksys e1000 with DD-WRT installed as a client bridge. The DD-WRT main log in is 192.168.1.1. The directions I'm working off are here:
Could someone please tell me what I have to change in those directions considering my default gateway is 192.168.2.1 and not 1.1? Specifically,
- should the static IP I set up be 192.168.2.9 instead of 1.9?
- in the directions, where it says "go to setup, basic setup and enter a local IP address of 192.168.1.6, should that be changed to 192.168.2.6?
I'm assuming not as I've tried the above and not having luck. When I do that, I can access the DD-WRT GUI when the static IP is 192.168.2.9 but there is no internet connection. And when I set the computer back to auto IP, I can't even access 192.168.2.9 anymore.
I feel like I've tried all combinations of 1s and 2s here! Can someone offer some advice?
