You should use the Asus Router as a Router, and set the Unleashed Master AP in Bridge Mode (not Gateway Mode). That way, your Asus router will provide IP addresses to all your Unleashed APs, clients, etc. You do not need to have multiple routers on your network, and the Asus router cannot be used as an Unleashed member AP, so the only way to use the router is to use it as a router, and let your Unleashed network (and all devices) get their IP addresses from your Asus router. 

Hope it helps!
