Question

DHCP Not working from AP

Ok, for starters here is the setup
Equipment
2Wire Modem / Router
Engenius 2611 Units for both AP and Bridge

Main Office
2wire router in main office - setup with DHCP starting at 192.168.1.125, netmask of 255.255.255.0 and gateway of 192.168.1.254 2611 is an AP ethernet connected to 2wire router and with static IP of 192.168.1.5 with netmask of 255.255.255.0 and no gateway entered

Remote Location
2611 as an AP connected via Cat5 (and POEs of course) to 2611 Bridge pointing toward 2611 at Main Office. Both have dedicated IPs of .6 and .7 with subnet but no gateway numbers

Problem
Connection through the remote AP works great IF the user puts in a dedicated IP but will not let them on if they are setup with DHCP - error says "Obtaining IP Address" and never does Which is, of course, the reason for this email and the hope that you can solve this so that users do not have to put in an IP static on their computers to gain access

Thanks so much for any and all help

Clarification Request
Looks incorrect.

With 2 routers in play, and only this much detail I suggest you remove one router. We only need one router.

Whoa! 2 routers ? where did you get that idea from? the only router is the 2wire to which the main 2611 Access Point is connected to via Ethernet port.

It's under your main office passage.

It read like there could be too routers.

There are cases where folk install firewalls that block the DHCP. Be sure that DHCP works in the first wifi area then to the next and check the firewalls and ask the makers of the gear if there are firmware updates.
