router -> bridge

I have a device I want to put on the LAN (an Xbox v. 1), so it can get
RSS feeds from outside as well as access my SMB shares locally. It only
has a hardwore ethernet jack and no slots. It also would be impractical
to run an ethernet cable to it, so it'll have to be a wireless <->
ethernet bridge. To that end, I got a router which supports "bridge"
mode, an Actiontec MI424WR (revision D). There's another one in the house
(earlier revision though), so the interface is familiar.
The manual says that to make it an IP bridge, I need to set it to have
no IP address. (Actually, it says that having no IP address is useful
when configuring it as a bridge.) Fair enough. However, the message
it pops up before it does that scares me. It says: "Configuring an
internal connection to have no IP address will make it inaccessible".
I can see that.
1. Is that step necessary? Can't I do this:
(( net )) -- router #1 -- 192.168.1.x (router #2) -- 192.168.2.x (xbox)
`- 192.168.1.x ( ... )
2. If it is necessary, how do I access the router afterward?
