I have a bank of Cisco 3750-E switches, and they have a gateway address of 10.3.0.1 for all clients.  I have a Linksys E1500 wireless router connected to this switchbank with an IP address of 10.3.0.100 set up for a few mobile clients.  Currently all clients are using static addressing but we want to change the wireless clients to use DHCP.  I enabled DHCP on the router and added DNS addresses and everything is fine except the clients, when connecting wirelessly, are getting the IP address of the router assigned as the gateway.  I need to know if there is a way to pass a different gateway to the clients, or use a routing entry or something to route the traffic to use 10.3.0.1 as the gateway so the wireless clients can communicate with the other clients on the network.

Is the wireless router in AP mode? If so, it should only be a wireless L2 extension of your network. I assume the 10.3.0.100 address is for management correct?

That said if it is in AP mode and not router mode, you should not need to enable dhcp on it, it will just allow dhcp broadcast from your wired network to reach the wireless and vice versa.

We weren't using DHCP in our wired network, but we reached the same conclusion that it would be easiest to just set up a DHCP server in the network instead of on the router.  Just tried it and it works perfectly.  Thank you!
