I was going to suggest disabling DHCP and put it on the same subnet as the other router. Try that anyways to see if it works.

you can use an alternate firmware, called ddwrt, and that has a wireless repeater function. but only in version 24 and your router has to be supported. theres 2 netgear routers that are supported
