Default Access Point mode settings on Tomato

Can someone point out all the things to change to let a second router act as just another wireless radio (specifically on Toastman's builds)? Edit: I think everything is working, but I would to make sure I didn't miss anything.

So far I've got:
  • Disable WAN Port (by checking "Use WAN port for LAN")
  • Disable DHCP Server
  • Fill in correct IP addresses for Router, Gateway and DNS
  • Switch Router from "Gateway Mode" to "Router Mode"
  • Connect Ethernet: Main Router LAN1 <-> WAN Second Router (remember WAN is in LAN mode)

Settings I'm unsure about on the Secondary Router:
  • DHCP Routes
  • Use internal DNS
  • NAT loopback
  • NAT target
  • All the "Tracking / NAT Helpers": FTP, GRE / PPTP, H.323, SIP, RTSP
  • Inbound Layer 7

To add a 2nd WIFi radio (AP), you needn't use Tomato. But that's another story.

I know, but it was already running Tomato from when it was my main router.
