    why two in the same proximity?
    assuming a cheap 4-port router, one goes into an empty slot on the LAN side.
    be sure to set DIFFERENT channels or these guys are going to upset each other.

    what else??

    it would appear that you want
    router -->AP1 <--- wireless ---> AP2 --->other systems
    AP2 would need to be setup as a BRIDGE.
    see your manual for details.
