If you are talking about both routers having internet access, then, only if you purchase an additional public WAN IP address from them, but they are phasing this feature out so it may not be available in your area.

What is the purpose of connecting two routers here? As EG mentioned, you won't be able to get two separate WAN connections unless your modem is set up for that service.
