For example: my Rogers modem is 192.168.1.x but my other routers are 192.168.100.x, 192.168.15.x. and are both visible from any PC on my second router.

You should only have to change DHCP range on the secondary router. The only DHCP assigned addresses from the ISP router would be to the secondary router.
I will try changing the subnet on my router.

Just to clarify I had to change the ISPs router/modem to bridge mode because my router was not connecting to the ISP. I don't want to use the ISPs modem as a router. I don't want the ISPs modem/router to assign a DHCP address to my router.

If I'm understanding you, you're saying the ISPs router could assign an IP address to my router and all devices would get their IP addresses from my router (not the ISPs). The ISPs gateway in this scenario would be receiving the WAN address (instead of my router) from the ISP?
