I think it may be because that your DHCP server is still just handing out IPs to the ether2. You have to put in the Bridge.

check ip/dhcp server and clik on the DHCP server listed and check the interface set. Must be the bridge, I think.

Looking at the past it seems that your NAT is disabled. you will need a src-nat or masquerade to acces the internet through the router.
