simply put this is what u should do.
lets say the ip address range u have configured on the local room router is 192.168.1.1 - xxx with the ip address of the router been 192.168.1.1
configure this local router as an AP with a unique SSID, channel 7 as u have already done, enable DHCP on this router this way all devices connecting to it will automatically acquire ip address in the range stated above.
using your laptop confirm u an connect to thie local router and have access to the internet.
for the remote room device, yes u have to statically assign an ip address to your pc b4 u can access its config page. lets say that the default ip address of the remote device is 192.168.100.20, then assign 192.168.100.21 to your pc and the log into the device, and on the config page for the LAN for the remote device change the lan ip address to 192.168.1.2, click apply or ok whichever is there and also change the ip address of your pc to 192.168.1.3. the essence of this is to have all your network on the same ip address range for easy and better management.
with the remote device on bridge with AP, use same channel as the local router, if the remote device has a site survey button or section, u should click or go to it and u will definitely see the ssid of the local router and connect to it. but if it doesnt have such then enter the same ssid of the local router into the remote device, but with DHCP DISABLED on the remote device. (there is no need enabling wds cos that is a different type of config mode, so no need on entering mac addresses too)if u wanna use wds then both devices must have and use wds and not AP/WDS with bridge with AP, it wont work.
when the remote device must have connected to the local device, then return your pc to autmatically acquire ip address and the local router been your dhcp server will lease an ip address to it. let me know how it went.
