First of all, you need to forget about the dreambox. You need to get the access point talking to the router. As all models of router/access point have different web interfaces, it's very difficult to write a tutorial on setting it up. Refer to the manual or leaflet that came with the device.

You will need to connect the access point to your PC/laptop with an ethernet cable. Access the web interface and configure it the same as the router, i.e. all wireless security, passkeys, structure, wireless channel, etc. All these have to be exactly the same as the router before it will talk to it.

To start with, disable the wireless security on the router and the access point to get it working, then once you're happy it's working, you can turn it back on.

You should have an instruction leaflet or manual with the access point which should tell you how to connect it to the router.

The dreambox is the easy part. In the network setup page, where it says DNS SERVER and DEFAULT GATEWAY, put the ip address of your router in there. Save settings and reboot box and you should be able to connect to the box via PC/laptop ok.
