Wireless Access Point with DHCP?

I would like to setup a wireless router (WRT54G) with DHCP enabled behind an already existing router and on the same LAN. The existing router does not have DHCP or RIP enabled but does have about 20 additional static routes pointing to other LAN subnets. The primary router is so I can set the secondary to and communication happens between the hosts and if I add a static route I can communicate with for example 192.168.2.x. My issues is getting packets routed to the Internet. The primary router already knows how to get to the Internet so either I need to add a route to the secondary that says send all X packets to the primary router or I need to figure out a way to have the DHCP server give out a gateway other then itself. Hope that isn't too confusing. Thanks!

OK, sorry if I am wrong here, I don't usually mess with the Linksys stuff as much, but I have a rack of Cisco crap in my living room, ha. Does it allow you to set a forwarding or default gateway on that router? Or maybe if you can set it up for forward all traffic out the port that goes to the other router. I would know how to do it on a normal router, but I am kinda fuzzy on the small stuff, since it tends to be made to be idiot proof (not meant to say you are an idiot, just a term) but not very functional for that kind of stuff. When I get home I will see what kind of options mine has (I have a Linksys WRT150 N, so similar for sure) and see if I can figure anything out.

OK, home now, looking at the page, it looks like you should be able to make a static route on the advanced routing page for the IP of the other router, this should put all traffic through to the other router no matter what.
