If the wireless router has a WAN port, I think you'd want to connect
the router LAN to the wireless routers WAN.

Your router should be assigning the wireless router a ip, probably
192.168.1.<something>, but the wireless router will see that address
as it's WAN ip. It won't allow you to access it's administrative pages
from that ip (at least I hope not), and still should come up with it's address if that's what it's supposed to do.

Can you ping it?  Does the router show that the wireless router picked
up an ip address?
