Two networks/Wireless routers

Specs: Windows Vista

I recently returned from college to find my parents installed Verizon FiOS TV in the house. Unfortunately, the guys who installed it couldn't (or wouldn't) get it to work with the wireless N router I had in there, so they put in their own wireless G. This doesn't give me a good signal in the parts of the house I use it in, so I would like to set up the old wireless N in addition to the network we have running now off of the wireless G so it doesn't mess up the FiOS stuff.

Is this as simple as disabling DHCP on the wireless N and connecting its WAN port to one of the G router's LAN ports? Just connecting the two ports without this sets up the second network but I can't access the internet through it yet.

Thanks for the help!
