How do I use 2 Wfi routers in the same Home network?

Pri= Xfinity gateway model: DPC3941T DOCSIS 3.0 24x4 Wireless Residential Voice Gateway

IP 10.0.x.x

Sec= TrendNet model: TEW-811DRU

IP 192.168.x.x

Pri LAN port using Cat5 to Sec WAN port

 

Network worked fine before I signed up for X1 triple play (I had Internet / phone before) and I added Ceton 6 eth and comcast cable card TV... At 1st I used port 1 on Xfinity gateway for Ceton 6 eth, but it wouldn't work, so I used a port on Sec router, and it worked fine, but I lost Internet to Sec router...

Called Comcast and rep had me put Pri into "Bridge mode" and Internet returned to Sec, but NO Wifi on Pri (which has stronger signal)... I want Wifi on Pri, and wired LAN on Sec, why doesn't this work? My research says it should work fine...

 

Problem 2: No remote access to WOL to wake-up computers on wired LAN from Internet, wake-up works fine on Local network... Remote access works fine from Internet IF computer is already ON (I don't want to leave ON 24/7)... Just won't wake-up from sleep mode... Using "Team Viewer" software...

 

Thanks for any Help...
