I've been struggling with my home network since I moved in but finally got to some results. Here's current set-up:

THOMSON 585V.7 (modem/Wi-Fi router) ->
wireless bridge ->
LINKSYS WRT54GL (Tomato firmware) ->
cable ->
D-LINK DIR655 (Wi-Fi router) ->
wireless ->
PC and laptop.

It looks like there's only one DHCP server active in your network since the devices all have an IP address in the same range 192.168.1.X. I'm assuming this is the Thomson router.
