Usually if you want to use a wired and wireless router in combination, you make the wireless unit an access point. To do so you put them on the same subnet and let the wired router control DHCP for all:
-no changes required to the wired router
-reset the wireless WAN connection to default, i.e un-configured
-assign the wireless LAN side an IP address in the same subnet as the wired router.  Make sure it does not conflict with the wired router's DHCP range, or any statically assigned devices
-disable DHCP on the wireless
-wireless connections should be configured in the normal manor
-connect a cable from one of the LAN ports of the wired router to one of the LAN (not WAN) ports of the wireless. If the lights do not light up indicating a connection you may need a cross-over cable (usually only necessary on older units)
-now all devices should have Internet access and be able to easily connect to one another to share resources the wireless client scan obtain address through DHCP but from the wired unit, through a wireless connection.

Looking at the on-line manual I see it does not even have DHCP server options. It only relays DHCP addresses from the primary router. I wonder if it has to be integrated with another Linksys and not fully compatible with Netgear. Sorry I cannot confirm that.

Do you have both of them on the same range?

Default IP of Netgear is    

192.168.0.1

Default IP of Linksys WAP is

192.168.1.245

They both need to be on same range.

I've had a similar problem on my dlink router, had to upgrade firmware of the router and the wireless card to fix the problem.  I would say in your case, you may need to upgrade firmware on your wireless ap as well as on the netgear router...
Mine started this problem when I switched to WPA security.
