The Firewalled hardwired router is connecting to the internet and your wireless router is not.
Disable the firewall and, if enabled, the DNS service on the wireless router. Keep DHCP on and give it a different IP subnet.
So if your hardwired device has an internal network setup as 192.168.1.x give the wireless router an internal network config of 192.168.2.x.

The bottom line is treat the wireless router as if its connecting to an ISP but instead its your primary "wired" internal network.

That will work just fine. You could even turn on the firewall and allow people to wirelessly connect while protecting your hardwired devices, such as servers.
