You need to turn off the DHCP and routing features of the second router, so all you are using are it's switching functions.

As eire1274 mentioned, but we don't know what routers you have and if you are a notice at router features, it's will be next to impossible to tell you how to set it up.

Basically you need to have one router setup as a router and other other router setup as a bridge. Or at least I think that's what you are trying to accomplish.

Sorry, busy and took too long to answer.

DHCP is just addressing to create unique internal IP addresses. Routing functions include gateway operations (which allows the internal IPs to all access the internet over one IP), firewalling (if equipped), filtering, etc.

Look up NAT if you are still having the issue. You have dual NAT.

NAT (Network Address Translation) is a feature of DCHP (or virtual IP) routing. This was covered above (indirectly) when I suggested disabling the routing functionality of one of the routers.
