The DHCP servers may "fight". The OP is probably better off disabling
DHCP in the WNR1000. That way the addressing setup in the WNR1000
doesn't really matter; associating wifi clients will get their addresses
from the primary router.

Alternatively, configure different DHCP ranges on the two routers - in
the same network. That is as well as making sure the two routers have
different LAN interface IP addresses.
