"This adapter then feeds into a Netgear WGR614 v7 into the WAN port"
Um WAN port - NO, if your wanting to use it as a switch then your not going to be connecting into the wan port.
As stated turn off DHCP on your router you want to use as your switch, change its LAN IP to be on the same network as your main router and not to conflict with it, so if your main router is say 192.168.1.1 then make your switch routers lan IP 192.168.1.2 -- also depending on your main routers dhcp scope -- lets say its 192.168.1.100-150
Then your good.
Using a router as a switch, is the same as using it as an accesspoint.
If your connecting to its wan port then your double natting most likely - unless you have set it to bridge?? etc.. Use its LAN Port to connect to your network, dhcp off, its IP changed be on your network and shazam you have a switch not a router.

Unless it's able to act as a repeater I'd shut the wireless off too and keep it dead simple... EoP still isn't great and I'd rather take the reduced signal to the active router over snappier wifi and traversing the EoP trunk.
True it doesn't actually have to be on the same network -- but if you for whatever reason would like to access it!! Then yeah makes sense to put in your network doesn't it It is a wireless router - so might be helpful to be able to access it so you could setup wireless, or disable it, etc. etc..
