Router won't let second router/switch access internet?

I have a Netgear WNDR3400v3 that is the primary router for my home LAN situated inbound from the modem. I also have a Linksys BEFSR81 V3 that I am trying to configure as just a switch downstream from the Netgear in order to extend my wired network a bit further in the house. I have disabled the DHCP on the Linksys and given it a static IP on the same network segment (IP is 192.1685.1.250, 255.255.255.0, Gateway is 192.168.1.1, DNS is 192.168.1.1 with 2nd DNS is set at Googles 8.8.8.8). With this setup I am able to see the now configured Linksys switch on the LAN but cannot access the Internet with any device hooked into the Linksys. I know I'm probably missing some configuration that is very simple but for the life of me I cannot find it. Please help.

Jack
