This setup works for me:

The key is to get the second WRT out of "router" mode and into "access 
point" mode. Do this by putting the uplink on a LAN port rather than the 
WAN port. Then you should disable the DHCP server on the second WRT. 
This keeps it from handing out IP addresses and NATing all your 
traffic... You now have a fancy schmancy switch/access point, and all 
devices plugged into either WRT should talk to each other.
