Did you plug it into the main router via its LAN port or WAN port? To use it as an access point I think you need to plug it into a LAN port.
If you plugged it via the WAN port than the 192.168.0.240 will be assigned to the wan port.
Have you changed its default 192.168.0.1 address so that it does not conflict with the main router? If you haven't then you may have an IP conflict with the main router.
