It's worth a try if you don't want to purchase anything. Standard set up procedure for this below. D-link also has their own set up procedure for this somewhere but it's not officially supported.

If you want to connect 2 routers and allow them to have a network of computers communicating just hook up one of the ports of your first router into one of the LAN (not wan)ports on your second router. Be sure to disable DHCP server on the second router and set the second routers address to something different than the first if you want to access it on the network. Your second router will act like a switch so your first router will be assigning IP addresses to them so make sure you have DHCP on the first router.

You where kind of right here, after ALOT and yet again ALOT of troubleshoting it seems like one of my that i called router that actualy where a switch was giving out a wrong gateway. so i had to manually change the gateway and then renew my ipconfig to make my internet work on all win7 machines. thank you.

and i also made your tip, i removed the other switch/router or whatever it is and installed a real switch instead so now i only got a modem, a router and a big enough switch to give internet to all my machines.

Well you choose the easy way then. Good idea just to simplify things a bit. I'm glad that you got it up and running Hawake. That procedure I outlined would have probably worked but it's much easier to just use a switch.
Thanks for reporting back in Hawake. I will mark this as solved. :)
