The Linksys AP is doing just exactly what it is suppose to do. If it does not have a setting on there to change it from an access point to a bridge type device, it wiill not work. I do know the dd-wrt.com has firmware for the AP that will give you the option to use it as a bridge, but I have never tried it. The requirements for wireless connections are a bridge type device ONLY! An access point takes a wireless signal like from your laptop and then routes it out the RJ45 jack and the other end of the connection from that plugs into the router. That is not what you are trying to do. What you are trying to do is just the oposite. You want the RJ45 jack to be the incoming signal from the HR20 and wireless TX/RX to the wireless router.
