How do I get my wireless router to talk to my wireless access point?

How do I get my wireless router to talk to my wireless access point? I can get an AP to talk to and AP but not AP to router.
The ability for an AP to simultaneously operate as a wireless station by connecting to an upstream AP is known as wireless bridging. Only a handful of APs offer this feature. For example, the Cisco Aironet 350 can be used as a wireless workgroup bridge, connecting to another Cisco Aironet 350 AP. Other AP examples include the Intel PRO/Wireless 2011 Access Point and the Linksys WAP54G and WAP11. One wireless router product that supports bridging is the Belkin 54G (see this PDF).
