I have two routers, one wired one wireless. The wired router is connected to the internet and the wireless router is connected to the wired router. My iPhone and MacBook are both connected to the internet via the wireless router and in turn the wired router. I'm trying to get them to see each other. How?

Router (wired) has ip address 192.168.0.3 and router (wireless) has ip address 192.168.0.86 . The iPhone and MacBook are both connected to the wireless router. However iPhone apps such as remote, files and things can't see the other device over the wireless network and I'm forced to disconnect from the internet and create a computer to computer network using the MacBook in order to use these applications. For a number of complicated reasons the router setup needs to stay like this (1 wired 1 wireless) so I'm afraid that changing that isn't an option. I'm clueless when it comes to all this. Is what I'm trying to do possible? Thanks for any guidance that anyone can provide. I can give more information if needed!
