Have you bought a router to use as a WAP? You'll need to put it into Access Point mode or similar - I suspect you have clashing DHCP servers, as well as routing going on where it may not be desired!

If my understand of WAP is that it's an Access point for all wireless machines to use to connect to the same network as the wired machines then yes :P

Do you know what current DHCP servers you have running (for instance, I have one server which manages DHCP for our whole range)? Log onto the routers/WAPs via the web interface and see if they're set to dish out DHCP too, and if they're not supposed to - switch the feature off.
You will have issues if you routers as APs in router mode - they're expecting to route traffic between ranges which they won't be required to do, as well as dishing out services like DHCP that can cause a right mess.
Basically, if you need wireless access points; it's best to buy dedicated WAPs, not wireless routers.
