combining 2 routers for adsl connection and wifi

I have two routers, one of them has only 1 port and is wired, wich works perfectly, and i have another one wich has 4 ports, a allows wireless connections, I can use it perfectly as a local network however it  doesnt work well connection to the ADSL server.

I would like to connect the 1 port router  (that receives the adsl connection) to the 4 port one so i can broadcast the adsl connection all over my home.

is there any possible way to do it??

The 4 port router has a built in 4 port switch. If you run a crossover cable between the 1 port LAN and 4 port you should work probably. Just check to make sure that you get an ip address. You shouldn't need to do any other configuring because the PC will broadcast across the switch to the 1 port router for an IP address. Once it gets an address and gateway, it should get you onto the internet.

Use a crossover cable between the 1 port and the 4 port one, might need a straight through depending on the 1 port routers configuration. Then plug PC's and use wireless from the other router.

Do you mean to connect a port from the 4 ports router to the 1 port one??

And how do I "tell" the 4 port router to "get" the internet connection from one of the ports thats connected to the 1 port router??

Here's a picture of the routers, I hope it helps
