Sonicwall Zones and DHCP

Zones
I have a network with a Windows Server acting as my DHCP server. I have a Sonicwall TZ215 with 3 zones. The first two are for intranet and internet connectivity, and are password protected. Zone 3 is meant to be used as a wireless router for internet only for our guests.

I have other 'local' wireless routers connected to zone 3 so not only guests, but employees with smart phones can use Wifi. Last bit of info: My main subnet (the protected one) is subnet 10.1. The guest subnet is 9.1. 

Here's my problem. If I set up DHCP on a local wireless router (let's say a linksys), the router (address 9.10) sets itself as the default gateway. Therefore the wireless devices can't access the internet, since it's really the Sonicwall (address 9.1) which is the default gateway. If I don't use DHCP clients on the computers, and I set the Gateway as 9.1, they work fine. If I use DHCP, they can't get to the internet because the gateway is set as 9.10. 

Is there an easy solution for me? Can I set the sonicwall as a DHCP server ONLY for Zone 3? 

Thank you
