Unable to connect linux machines through sencondary router

I have three development machines: two linux machines running CentOS (v5.8 and v6.3)and one Windows machine running Windows XP. I have two routers which I will refer to as router1 and router2.

Router1 is connected to the internet,and I am able to successfully connect all machines to the internet using router1.

I connected router2 to one of the ports on router1 and configured it to a different subnet(router2 is configured to whereas router1 is configured to

I connected all three machines to router2. The Windows machine connects to the internet using router2 (subnet with no problem.

The Centos machines fail to connect. When running ifconfig I see that they are both still trying to connect using subnet How would I configure the linux machines to use router2's subnet configuration?

(I am using the default DHCP configurations from the linux installations)

Closing the original in favour of the more sensibly placed dupe.
