1) Firmware: "Try re-flashing your WAP54G with 3.04 or later even if
it is installed."
2) Security? Turn it off to start with for testing purposes.
3) Wireless Mode: Sounds like you are using WDS with Bridge mode.
Instead, use the default AP mode in the first one and AP Client mode
in the other. Reset them both first and set up again. The AP
Client mode of the far WAP should have a way to survey for an AP and
then you choose to connect to it. Add WPS once you are certain it's
stable with no security.

The Access Point offers five modes of operation: Access Point, AP
(Access Point) Client, Wireless Repeater, a
Wireless Bridge. For the bridging mode and Repeater mode, (DON'T USE)
make sure the channel, SSID, and WEP keys are same.
Access Point - The Operational Mode is set to Access Point by
default. This connects your wireless PCs to a
wired network. In most cases, no change is necessary. (USE THIS MODE
FOR FIRST WAP)
AP (Access Point) Client - When set to Access Point Client mode, the
Access Point Client is able to talk to o
remote access point within its range. This mode allows the Access
Point Client to act as a client of a remote
access point. The Access Point Client cannot communicate directly with
any wireless clients. A separate network
attached to the Access Point Client can then be wirelessly bridged to
the remote access point. Enter the required
LAN MAC address of the remote access point in the Remote AP MAC
Address field. (USE THIS FOR FAR END WAP)
To select an available access point, click the Site Survey button and
choose from the access points listed by
clicking on the radio button for the appropriate access point and
clicking the close button. If you do not see a
access point listed, click the Refresh button and another survey will
Also, do you really want two subnets? Could also be part of the
problem? If seperate subnet is not needed, have all DHCP requests
forwarded to the primary router for assignment.
