JFYI the channels to use are 1, 6 and 11. They are the only ones that don't overlap, so you will get the best performance.
WPA2 can be problematic. But enabling it on both routers should not be a problem. The router itself may be the problem. Also FYI you don't need a router for additional wireless coverage, all you need is an wireless access point (WAP or AP).
I myself don't use "combo" devices. My router, switches and APs are all separate devices. This allows me to chose the device best suited for the task. YMMV.
