cisco aironet 1242 AP - configured as universal workgroup bridge
cisco 1760 router
I have a problem using a 1760 router with a 1242 uwgb, the 1242 is connected to the internet, int f0/0 on the router is connected by cable to the 1242, the 1242 demands a mac address to work but it seems the 1760 will not provide one that works. If I connect the 1242 directly to a pc and enter the pc's mac address into the uwgb the internet connection works fine. The 1760 has a WIC-4ESW 4-Port Switch Card fitted, I have traffic going into the WIC-4ESW and out of Intf0/0. This config works fine and I've tested it with a modem connected to int f0/0.
If I do show int f0/0 on the 1760 it displays the mac address and I enter this into the 1242. But when booting the 1242 the config says:
'Configured Universal MAC Address is not present in the Bridge Table
Device will associate using BVI's mac address'
do I have to do something to get the 1760 to give the mac address? I've tried giving the router intf0/0 a different mac address but that didn't work.

decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
