Connecting 2 routers together?

Specs: Windows XP
I have some home networking issues if anyone would please give me some advice.
I currently have one phone line coming into the house. The router is positioned in the home office, and has to remain there due to me needing a secure connection that is wired as I work in banking. The home office is away from the house itself due to the fact that we converted a garage into an office. Having the router in the office means that there is either limited or no wireless connectivity in the house. After visiting a retail outlet they advised me to purchase another router to have in the centre of the house to enable wireless connectivity, although after installing, it would appear that both routers won’t work together due to the fact that they are on the same line. The routers give out a wireless signal but when I try to browse the internet, it just displays connection issues. Is there any other solution other than having a second broadband connection?
I have three computers in the home office, and a further three in the house that require wireless connectivity.
Many Thanks
Joe

What physical connection did you make between the routers?

Need to clear up a misconception:
Routers don't secure your banking.
If that pc is used for other things like surfing the net, you can invite the bad guys in [keyboard logger/root kit] and not even know it. There is nothing a router can do to prevent this. This is why you need to be smarter than the bad guys.

Read this older thread on the subject. You need to run a CAT5 cable from LAN port of first router to LAN port of second router:
