Not familiar with this device but you should be able to do this with some fiddling.. here is my thinking

 

log into the device and set it as Wireless Router mode, the statically set an IP address on the device on a different subnet as your main router   192.168.1.1   vs   192.168.0.1  ..   I would also enable DHCP Server on the AP

Consider disabling the DHCP Server on the Router if not required.  If you have devices connecting LAN to this you may want to leave this enabled.

 

This theory this should work if you connect the 2x devices via the LAN connections

 

However you are likely to run into the Wireless connected to AP  having a different subnet to the LAN connected to router.. just as these are both routers.    If that is an issue you might be better just getting an AP, something like the EAP225 would be perfect for you.

 

Best of luck

Phil
