Did you connect the wifi router by it wan port or by its lan port?
It should have been connected by its lan port, no dhcp server enabled and it would be assigned a static ip in the user range so you can admin it.
Is it only the wifi clients not getting a dhcp ip? if so its because you connected the wifi router via its wan port.
Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
