Guys I could REALLY use some help setting up Home and Leb network

I am having a hard time getting this to work. Here is what I have:

Cox Cable Modem (ISP) into my Netgear Nighthawk R7000 router WAN. From Nighthawk to my HP Procurve switch. All my home wired gear and WiFI gear are getting DCHP from the Nighthawk. Network is on 10.0.1.X,

I picked up a Dell 2950 ad going to use it for my Lab computer so I picked up a cheap Netgear N300 router. I was planning using 10.0.2.X for the Lab network. I need to separate these network so in the Lab I can run DCHP and DNS etc and not mess up the Home network. I would like to be able to Remote Desktop from Home network into Lab Server since all gear is in closet.

So I setup how I thought it should go. I ran Ethernet from the switch into the new N300 Router WAN port. I setup the LAN for I have the Dell server plugged into the Ethernet ports on the N300. So from the server I have internet provided from my home network. I can ping anything on the 10.0.1.X or 10.0.2.X network from the server.

Now when I come to my Home desktop. I can't ping anything on the 10.0.2.X network. Not ever the router at Since can't reach anything on Lab network there is no way to try remote desktop.

Can anyone help me out? I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I even watched this video on youtube and still lost!
