Need networking help, wireless and wired in unison

Here's the dealio:

Comcast Cable Modem
Vonage Linksys Voip gateway/router
Airport Express Base Station (port 1), SlingMedia Box (port 2)

All four computers are running off of the wireless network. I need to setup the AE so that it is an expansion of the voip router. As it is now, each router is giving out its own set up IP's (both setup for DHCP). I'm not a networking guru, and never profess to be. Can someone gently lead me down the path to integrated media bliss?

I've been on their forums and have the router configured for the port forwarding. That's set, it sees it. The hitch is getting the one PC in the joint (as said before, wireless) to behave like it's on the main router to do the initial setup of the SlingMedia Box. Help please! smiling smiley

Connect to the AEBS, set up admin, turn OFF DHCP routing. This basically makes it a switch with a wireless capability. Everything connecting to the AEBS will get its IP address from the LinkSys router.
