The best and only way to do this in my opinion is to remove one of the routers from the system and don't use the A/P as a pass through switch. You want to plug the A/P into another switch and don't plug another router into the A/P, then remove one of the routers from the equation. I would definitely go with the Cisco router first in the system as the main router rather than using the ATT modem router combo which should be tossed.

Using dual routers in a single network is a hit or miss type of deal and no matter how well you set them up it may not be reliable. I won't get into the fact that every time there is a power outage you will need to go in and re-set up the secondary router all over again. Configuration files come in handy for this.

If you want a chance at getting this set up for dual routers the link below might help you get all the setting correct.
