Using second router as a wired repeater

I'm basically following this guide:
http://lifehacker.com/5563196/turn-your-old-router-into-a-range+boosting-wi+fi-repeater

It works wirelessly, but I'm trying to get it to work physically. Is there anyway to do this?

The end goal is to have my old PC as a server on the other side of the house, connected to nothing but the second router and a power cord. I know I could do this easily just by running an ethernet cord across the house and skip using the second router altogether, but I'd really rather not.
