I have a similar but different problem with the DWL-900AP+. I've read in other lists that the 900 just doesn't bridge too well.

I have a D-Link DWL-520 happily plugging away in AP Master mode on my Linux box, with another Linux box connecting as a client to the master using a DWL-520. I can ping happily across this wireless link, as well as connections "behind" the wireless links.

I tried adding a DWL-900AP+ to the network as a wireless access device for a TiVo / Turbonet combo. However, when the DWL-900AP+ is in "AP Client Mode", I can ping the LAN address of the DWL-900AP+ from the Linux AP Master, however, I cannot ping the IP of the device that is attached to the LAN interface of the DWL-900AP+. If I put the 900 in "AP Bridge Mode", it breaks after 17 miscellaneous packets are received by the DWL-520 / Linux / HostAP host.

I've wracked my brain to solve this problem without success, and have simply concluded that the D-Link DWL-900AP+ sucks.
