Linksys Wireless router, or to D-Link wireless router on either the WAN or LAN ports (which either should work)If you have the DHCP server running on the LAN side of your wireless router, that can create conflicts if the radio is also passing out IPs.
Well engineered projects are indistinguishable from crazy ideas.
Speed, distance, reliability, cost...Pick three.

I have contacted the ISP and they brought their laptop out and plugged it in and it worked. Just like the 2 other laptops and 2 other desktops. The don't have an issue with adding more ports in his house. They couldn't explain why the routers/switches didn't work. They even gave us the user name/password to manage the bridge if we wanted to.
Yes. The cable I remove from any of the working NICs (laptops/desktops) and plug into any of the 3 routers/switches WAN or LAN port will not get a physical link light. You are thinking of the correct picture, which is why this is a weird problem. I turned off DHCP on the routers to allow the bridge to pass them out. But this isn't even a problem since the routers are not even getting link.
PowerBridge (aka, airos, or radio).
Shielded Cat5 cable running ethernet and power down the pole to the house
POE-15 (POE side)
POE-15 (LAN side)
Cat5 (straight or x-over)
Laptop/Desktop (works), plugged into a Linksys or D-Link (no NIC lights).
Like I said this is a simple connection and a very weird issue. Sorry if this is still confusing. If need be I will have him send me the specific model numbers of everything and I will put them into a visio (or other diagram) to show you what we are doing. But it really is that simple. :-) Thanks again.
