Linksys wireless access point router

I have a Linksys wireless access point router with a four-port switch. I also have a LAN with a DNS server and DHCP server. For me to use the wireless access point I have to cut the servers off. My internal LAN IP address and subnet mask are with a mask of The Linksys address is with a default class C mask. I added a static route on the server and was able to ping the router but could not get out to the Internet. What do I need to do to get the router to work with my network?
Linksys has an option to enable/disable DHCP. Disable DHCP on the Linksys router, pick up an available IP address from your LAN and assign it to your Linksys. This way you won't need to put any static routes or make your network complicated.
