The upstairs router is then the ISP for the downstairs network.
This is exactly what I want to do.

slimm609's solution looks good; I think I'll try it...

I've done iptables --list, and get the following output:
Code:
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source                destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source                destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source                destination
Does this mean iptables is allowing everything to pass through?

Edit: I think I have the bridge working. Now, the problem is: how do I get all the other computers to use the linux box as an ISP?

cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward and see what it returns

if it returns 0 then

echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

It returns 1.

I guess the real problem now is how I'm to configure Windows and Mac to connect to my Linux box as the ISP. I'm not good at Windows, though.

Edit: Never mind. I got the Mac to work. Now, for Windows.

Just for the record, I've used this guide:
