You need to set the O2 box II to a different IP and disable DHCP.
On the O2 box II go to home network > interfaces > local network > configure >
under IP addresses >
192.168.1.254/24 -- click edit
change 192.168.1.254 to 192.168.1.1 -- click apply
You'll now need to reconnect to the O2 box II on 192.168.1.1 -- same user name / password.
Go back to the same place and remove the tick from "Use DHCP server" -- click apply. You'll loose connection to the router again but don't worry you'll get it back when the two routers are connected together.
Just connect the routers together with the ethernet cable and that's it.
In place of having a choice of two wireless you could place both routers on the same SSID, security settings and security key but different wireless channels. This way the PC will connect to whichever signal is strongest.

Yes but I didn't expect a switch in the setup, don't think it will cause a problem but it's something I've never tried.
