Attaching WAP to router

    I have a Linksys home router. No wireless on it, just one WAN port and
    four LAN ports. It is supposed to do DHCP serving but that never
    worked, so that is disabled. The router itself works great, it has its
    own address of 192.168.117.1, all computers cabled up to it browse the
    internet great.

    I also have a cheapo Airlink101 wireless access point with router (one
    WAN port, four LAN ports). I want to attach the airlink to the linksys
    so I can wirelessly browse the internet. I gave it an IP of
    192.168.117.2 and have set it to be a DHCP server, which appears to
    work fine. But I'm not sure how to configure the WAP to work with the
    router.

    Also, do I attach the airlink to the linksys via the airlink's LAN or
    WAN port?

    TIA
