Use a crossover cable and connect from LAN port on the one, to the LAN port on the other.

You'll need to setup the LAN side TCP/IP configuration on the downstream router so ensure you use an IP that isn't in the DHCP scope of the upstream router, but is still in the same subnet.

Additionally you will want to assign a static ip to the downstream router so you can manage it and disable its dhcp server when you connect lan port to lan port.

You are turning your 2nd router into a wireless AP/switch.

If you were asking about connecting them both wirelessly they would need to support wireless bridging.

Assuming that my primary router is the linksys and is the one connected to the modem, the secondary is the DLink DI-624. The ip that I am going to change to static will be the wireles ip or the lan ip in my DI-624?

They are not different, wireless/wired. They are both your lan.
