Here's the network hardware list:
Onboard Wired NIC in my main PC running WinXP
Linksys Wireless in my Linux Server using RT2500
D-Link Wired in my Linux Server using 8139
D-Link DGS-2205 10/100/1000 Switch to connect the two computers
Netgear Wireless Router (Forget the model right now) that's connected to the internet
I know that I can easily create a bridge in Win XP, however, the wireless NIC will impede airflow to my video card. I've followed this <A HREF="http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Building_a_Wireless_Access_Point#Simple_NAT-forwarding_setup">guide</A> to get the bridge up and running. The problem I'm having though is my main PC can't see the internet, but the Linux Server can. I've read through the guide a couple times and I must be missing something. Does iptables need to be running to make this happen? If it does, could someone tell me exactly what I need to do? The Linux Server isn't acting as an access point. It's just acting as a client for the router.
Here's a little diagram:
