You need to configure different prefixes (aka subnets) on each side of 
the Linksys router:

LAN side on Bellsouth:
WAN side on Linksys:

LAN (wifi) side of Linksys:

Laptop gateway:

A trick I recommend very frequently to our ADSL subs that want to 
implement a wireless router into their network who are already using our 
equipment that has NAT enabled (to avoid double-NAT), is to disable DHCP 
on the LAN side of the Linksys, disable the WAN interface, and connect 
the ADSL modem to one of the LAN ports on the Linksys.

Essentially, your access point will then be just that.

Hope I understood your problem properly.
