2 Routers + 2 DSL = 1 Network?

    I am currently in charge of a network where we are paying for 2 DSL connections (2 IP addresses, separate lines). I have 2 WRT54G v2 routers. The network contains about 50 users, mostly running Windows XP. Many people use File and Printer Sharing through My Network Places.

    Up until this point, we have only been using 1 DSL connection and 1 router. The other has been untilized.

    I would like to use both DSL connections to service requests for the network. I know I can physically split the 1 network into 2. However, I still want both networks to be able to talk to each other with Windows Networking.

    What is the best way to connect the two networks internally? What would be the best firmware for this kind of setup?

    One issue I want to avoid is the DHCP requests from one network being serviced by the router on the other. Also, I would prefer as little change as possible on the host computers.

    Install a dual WAN router instead. Set it's LAN as the current default gateway address the PC's are using.
