Are you using DHCP? If so make sure it's turned off in the second router, it could be giving you a non-existant gateway etc. Also ensure it has an IP# that doesn't conflict with anything else (but is in the same ip range as everything else!).

How have you plugged it in - lan port to lan port? Things could get messy if you're doing something else... sorry if that's obvious but I'm not familiar with either router and too lazy to look them up!

Cheers, P.
