Aceess to internet from 2nd subnet in LAN

I have setup my with two subnets (192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x) and have a number of clients on both. I am using a 2750n router as my 'primary' router, and have a Server 2008 machine running RRAS as my other 'router' on the 192.168.1.x subnet.

On the 192.168.1.x network I have a server running DNS for local queries on that subnet and have 8.8.8.8 setup as a DNS forwarder. On the 192.168.0.x subnet I use the google DNS 8.8.8.8.

I have setup a static route between the two subnets and am able to ping clients between each subnet.

With regards to internet access, I am unable to get access to the internet from the 192.168.1.x subnet (no problems from 192.168.0.x subnet) and am unable to even ping a web IP address, and am wondering if I need to make any changes to the 2750's configuration to allow traffic from the other one to get out to the internet.

Please advise.

Is there a particular reason for having separate subnets? If the two are able to ping one another, which the Subnet Mask would normally prevent, why not have a single subnet with all addresses being allocated by the main router's DHCP server, or give them manually configured addresses in the single subnet?
