You would be far better off using a single router and a wireless repeater switch rather than using a dual router set up. Dual router set ups are not a supported configuration for good reason.

But using a repeater will cost me more
I want to use my current devices rather than buying a repeater
Actually I want to let my second router to work as a repeater

Yeah I think this would be the way to go as well. I am sure it will not cost that much depending on where you are
