Easy, Turn off the DHCP on the second router and configure it so it is on same subnet as first. example, if your main gateway is 192.168.0.1 then configure second routers ip to be 192.168.0.2. Then plug your ethernet from first router or switch to the LAN on second router, NOT WAN! This will essentially turn your second router into a wifi AP. It will send all traffic and IP requests back to the main gateway. Good Luck.

Another way is to connect the WAN of the second router to the LAN of the first router, but you have to set up the LAN of the second router on a different network.

I have never attempted this and don't know for sure if it is possible, but I have come accross forums that claimed it was possible with certain routers if you were to load a thrid party firmware like PFSense or DDWRT on it. I would turn your research there.
