How do i connect a two routers wirelessly

Specs: Windows XP
I have a network where I have two wireless routers wired to a third (main) router. I want to connect a third wireless (Linksys WRT 54GL) to the main router,but I want to connect wirelessly (without any cables). I have tried to bridge it,ie disabling DHCP and assigning a static IP address which is in the same range as the main router but still if i connect my laptop using the third router I cant log onto the internet and worst still I cant ping the main router. The main router is the one that is connected to the proxy server. My connections are as follows,from the wireless antenna the cable goes to the proxy server's wan port,the main wireless router is linked to the server's lan port.My server's LAN ip is and the main wireless router is I have two other routers which are wired to this main wireless router and their local IP addresses are and respectively. I want to connect a third wireless router to the main router but this time without using a cable. What i have done so far is I have assigned it the IP address and I have diasbled DHCP,all the other settings I have put the same as the main wireless router. Where am I going wrong??

Where am I going wrong??

Where are you going right?

Antenna to server wan port. Eh?
Server lan port connected to main wireless router yet both the server lan port and router lan ports are in the same ip subnet. You connect the router to the server by its lan port? If by wan port your ip addressing is wrong.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
