|You have to clear up several things.|
What routers are you using exactly (model number)?
Which of the routers is connected to the Internet?
Which router is placed in your living room?
I guess, you'd like to connect both routers wirelessly, right?
So at the master router, the one, directly connected to the internet, you have to configure either WDS or normal router funktion.
I would suggest to use it as a normal router, if the other router supports repeater mode.
In repeater mode, the router connects just like a computer to the master router but allows you, to connect also wirelessly to the second router.
Also wired connected devices will be forwarded to the master router to access the internet.

Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!
