I cannot ping the WD Hub from either the BESX41 router or the WRT54G2.
Below is a diagram of the network:
Note that in th eis configuration the laptop is essentially bridging the two segments that I want to bridge with the WES610N. It is attached to the WRT54G2 via wireless as 192.168.1.104 and it is attached to the WES610N via one of its ethernet ports. With that configuration I can move/copy files from 192.168.1.101 to 192.168.1.105, albeit very slowly. If I disconnect the laptop from the WES610N ethernet port, I have no path between 192.168.1.101 and 192.168.1.105, which is teh ultimate goal.

WES610N is now working and I am uncertain as to why.
After reading various posts about this bridge or that bridge not seeing both sides of the network, I decided to have the WD TV Hub try to get a new IP automatically and lo and behold, it worked. I don't know why it worked.
The one thing that comes to mind is that before I connected the WD TV Hub to the WES610N it had been connected to the network directly in anothe room so I could just play with it and the DHCP had set its IP then to 192.168.1.105 and when I moved it to the WES610N, I left the IP unchanged. Now that it is connected the DHCP gave it 192.168.1.109.
While I am glad it is connected I still want to know what may have happened just in case I get in that situation again.

Some tech stuff needs to be rebooted for it to work. Maybe the DHCP lease for the first time you hooked it up has already expired and you need to renew the IP lease.
