Using two routers to increase signal

Hi guys, I have a second now tv router from a previous home and my signal in my current home does not extend well to the back of the house. I'm trying to find out how to utilise the old router to boost signal. AM not very technical but have read about turning off DHCP??? can someone explain? Also would I plug the second router into my mains telephone socket or the existing main router?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Rather than try to describe it fully I suggest you google "using a second router as an access point".

Re: Using two routers to increase signal

Thanks @JohnH1 ! I'll definitely look into that - using an extra cable makes sense and hopefully isn't too complicated.
