No. You can only run one router connected to ADSL or cable.

You could link the two routers by ethernet cable -- or if you're lucky they'll both support WDS which allows you to link them by wireless. See link.

Why do you need two routers anyway? Is it a range issue? I'd look at getting a couple of Wrt54GL units from ebay and getting them reflashed with DD-WRT. Then you cans set them up in WDS as "veteran" has suggested.

You also can set them up as repeaters which gives them a quasi -WDS capability to extend any 802.11 g wireless network
