Connecting 2nd router as access point

Specs: Windows 7
im trying to hook up a 2nd older router as a wireless access point, i've follwed a few tutorials posted around the net but can't get any of them to work for me.

my setup is this:

main router bt home hub 3
Broadband network IP address:
Default gateway:
Primary DNS:
Secondary DNS:
Hub IP address:
DHCP Range: -

2nd router sagem f@st 2504n (sky)

i've tried disabling DHCP on my 2nd router, and giving it an ip address within the range of my main router.
both have security disabled.
2nd router has wireless access enabled.

i can connect no problem to my 2nd routers wifi, but seem to be struggling to get it to then connect to the internet

If you go to the How Tos to the right of this and go to the 2nd page there is a how to for doing this.

Trick is not to connect via the 2nd routers wan port but its lan port. Doing so it becomes a glorified wifi switch.
