Coax is so much easier to terminate. Spin the thing around and strip it and pop the fitting on and use the tool. Cat 5e, what a pain... Untwist all 8 wires, line them up in the right order, cut them to length, carefully put the end on making sure each wire goes though the right channel, then crimp it.
I wish gigabit Ethernet ran on coax and switches were all coax!
Anyway the wireless bridge prolly doesn't get an IP address at all then I guess from what your all saying, I guess it's like a transparent bridge. I thought maybe it would get an IP off the DECA network but I don't really see why it would need one... It's not doing any routing.
