Unfortunately, 192.x.x.x is a local subnet only and your router will not route any traffic externally (meaning, you cannot ping to that second subnet).

What I would recommend doing is turning off dhcp on the tier 2 router, allowing the router #1 to provide the ips and basically turning the second router into a switch.

actually visa versa... turn off dhcp on router #1, allow router #2... etc..
