Please help - Trouble connecting to Wireless network


I've got a problem i hope someone can help me with. I've recently moved and i want to connect to the existing wireless network in my new place. But this seems to be cause me some trouble and i have to admit i'm not that up to date with wireless networking.

Heres the run down of the setup:

Main Router : Netgear DG8344G v2

House PC adapter: Netgear WG111T

MY PC: Bufflo WHR-G125 Router/Access Point/Bridge.

The House PC has no problem connecting to the network through Netgear's setup utility. The problems start when i try to setup my Buffalo in bridge mode. The documentation provided assumes you are connecting with other buffalo products. And when i go through the steps for the set up the connection dies on the house PC. Why this happens i don't know , and to make it worse the buffalo still doesn't connect.

I'm probably doing something obvious but i can't figure it out. Does anyone have any experience connecting the Buffalo bridge to an existing wireless network?

I know this isn't much to go on, but since i don't know whats wrong, i don't know what information will be useful.

Thanks in advance
