Some devices wrong gateway 192.168.0.6 vs. 192.168.1.254

Specs: Windows 7
Won't connect to usual network, ie. gateway of 192.168.1.254, IP addressed assigned something like 192.168.1.2. Instead, connects to gateway of 192.168.0.6 and IP address is 192.168.0.20. My network is as follows, my router/modem is the gateway 192.168.1.254. This router then connects to a switch, to which most other computers are connected. All the computers that are connected to this switch have no problem, however, there is also a Western Digital Livewire (powerline networking) device connected to this switch. There are three devices connected to the livewire. These devices all get assigned to the wrong gateway. I've tried manually setting IP's on all these devices but none of them seem to be able to connect properly. When they have automatically assigned IP's (on the 192.168.0.6 gateway), they can connect to the internet, but can't see any of the devices that are on the 192.168.1.254 gateway. Does anyone have any ideas?

Obviously, there are 2 DHCP servers running in your network.
Default subnet mask in an 192.168.x.x network is 255.255.255.0.
So your first network is 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.255 and the second network is 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.255.
This causes, that a client computer of the first network can't see any computer of the second network.

I cannot think what the other DHCP server would be...the only devices which are on the 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.255 range are a samsung 'smart' tv and a western digital TV live hub

Obviously, you have 2 networks.
One is 192.168.0.x
second is 192.168.1.x

Either, there are 2 routers, that are both acting as DHCP server or, you've configure the ip addresses for one of the networks manually.
In the case of manual configuration, you have to set it to automatically obtain ip address and DNS server address.

"When they have automatically assigned IP's (on the 192.168.0.6 gateway), they can connect to the internet"

what device is at 192.168.0.6? That is your 2nd dhcp server.
