If both routers support RIP you should be able to just enable it and connect their LAN segments together with a crossover cable. If you don't have RIP you will have to create static routes so that traffic from 2.0/24 destined to 0.0/24 is directed to 0.0 to be routed. You would also have to add a route telling 0.0/24 to send traffic destined to 0.2/24 network to the 0.2 router. A page on your WebGUIs will probably ask for "Destination" (the network of the other router: ie. on Connection 1's router), and Gateway is of course the ip of the other router ( for Connection 1).
