The FritzBox(Range from 192.168.1.20 to 192.168.1.50) is a DHCP Server and also Router1(Range from 192.168.1.100)
I need a Dhcp server either on Router1 or Router2 so that all clients can receive an ip - I couldnt manage it that all clients receive an Ip from the FritzBox - any idea how to configure this? Only the clients at the AP site can receive an ip from the FB but not the ones at the RB site - but if I have a DHCP Server at the Ap or RB site it works and everything can be pinged at any site. I also tried DHCP forward 192.168.1.1 (AP) but didnt work.
Make the IP of the RB 192.168.1.3, and then make sure you make the gateway and dns 192.168.1.1. And see if that works on the the RB. _________________

Today I flashed my 2 routers with dd-wrt.v24-10264_VINT_std.bin
but still the same problem that clients at the RB cant get an Ip from the FritzBox - so I have to activate a DHCP Server at the AP that works.
FritzBox (192.168.178.1) --- AP (192.168.178.2) --- RB (192.168.178.3)
The FritzBox FB 192.168.178.1 is configured as DHCP Server.
AP: Local IP 192.168.178.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Local DNS: 192.168.178.1
DHCP activated Start Ip address 192.168.178.100
RB: Local IP 192.168.178.3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Local DNS: 0.0.0.0
Client at RB gets Ip: 192.168.178.100
If I deactivate the DHCP Server at the AP side I dont get an Ip.
But I get an Ip if I am a client at the AP from the FritzBox.

A RB must connect to a DHCP serving unit.
I just tried dd-wrt.v24-10305_VINT_std.bin and now it works. My FritzBox is the DHCP serving unit! So a RB doesnt have to be connected to a DHCP serving unit!
I was just talking to Eko about this. It is true...it will connect to a non-DHCP server...but only until that DHCP lease expires. It doesn't renew properly at the 1/2 lease time...and it could be issued a different IP address after its obtained lease expires. This might cause a brief disconnection during the obtaining of the new IP address.
So...it is 1/2 working. But not all the way there yet. I am on the road currently...but I plan to test this out tonight and over the weekend. Maybe we can determine where the problem is.

It seems that there is another problem - I cannot create a Virtual Interface on the RB it seems that there is somewhere a mess and the RB looses the connection to the AP as soon a VI is created- When I deactivate the Virtual Interface the RB connects to the AP again.

Then how did you manage to get this working in the first place? A RB is not a RB until you create a virtual interface. An RB with no virtual interface is basically Client Bridge, and wireless clients cannot connect to it!
What if the 2nd repeater has a static IP address?
The issue is not with Repeater. It is with Repeater Bridge. Unlike Repeater, Repeater Bridge does not use DHCP to obtain a WAN IP address. It has only a statically assigned local IP.
If the clients also have static IP, they do not use DHCP either.
