Help merging 2 routers

My adsl modem died. Went out and bought a tplink adsl router/modem. The asus router is way better then the tplink. So I would like to disable the tplink router. How do bridge (?) The routers. Do I need a Ethernet cable between the router?

Thanks

So you need to set the DHCP service of the ASUS, to redirect users directly to the TP-Link. Just set the Gateway/Router IP address of the DHCP to point to the TP-Link.

I.E. say the TP-Link has the IP 192.168.1.1 and the Asus has the IP 192.168.1.254

Set the Asus DHCP server to set the Gateway/Router address to be 192.168.1.1

That is it. Ohh and turn off the Wifi of the TP-Link
Can't Stop. Won't Stop. Game Stop
