1) Make sure the main router's firewall is turned off.
2) Make sure the main router's MAC Filter is turned off.
3) If you log in to the second router's setup (it will have to be up and running on its own first) then you may be able to find some sort of option that says, "Routing: On/Off". This depends on the model you have...but basically you want to turn the routing function off on the 2nd router, because it's not really routing anything. Turning the routing function off will turn it in to a "switch", which is what you want. You can buy switches, but most routers can be switches (some do it automatically without changing any settings - but yours may not be like that).
Try steps one and two first, then try step three if it's still not working.
And this is kind of a dumb question but I want to ask it to make sure: When you hook the two together, you are going from an outgoing port on the main router, to the incoming port on the other router, right?
