First: why do you want to connect two routers? Wouldn't it be smarter if at least one of them was a hub or a switch? Or are you just using the switch part of the router since all you got is routers? :)

Now for the cables:
Uplink to normal port uses straight cable.
Uplink to uplink uses cross-over cable.
Normal port to normal port uses cross-over cable.

Computer to normal port uses straight cable.
Computer to uplink uses cross-over cable.
Computer to computer uses cross-over cable.

I think that covers it. :)
