    make sure your not using the WAN port on the wireless router. just use the 4 switched ports for the connection to the wired router and any other devices that may need to be connected to the router (if any)

    Don't quite understand. Do you have

    internet--WRT--Client (that works)

    and then

    i) internet--WRT--Wired_Router--client (that don't work)


    ii) internet--Wired_Router--WRT--client (that don't work)

    If you have (ii), your IP setup is OK, but if you have (i), your gateway should be the WRT, not the Wired_Router.

    If you have (ii), try to ping the Wired_Router. If you can do that, your problem is with the Wired_Router's setup.
