Setting up a Wireless network

By Patrick@Work ·
I have 10 networks with 16 users. I want to connect them all using wireless. Store files on a main server.

Using a Windows Server for DHCP I connect it to wireless access point. I then installed a wireless card in dedicated computers on each network. I then use WinXP Pro to bridge the wireless LAN card to the wire LAN card.

When I do this I can no longer get an IP.

When the wireless is not bridged I can get an IP on the wireless card from the server.

What am I doing wrong?

When you set two lans or cards to bridge, you are like making them pc to pc rather than pc to network. That's why you are not able to get an Ip address or simply not able to connect to the network. The reason behind was really explained to me, but let me have few more time to check on my resources. But technically, you will not be able to connect with that situation.
