I take it your router has 2 wan ports, one for the cable connection the other for the adsl connection?
Or are the connections directly into the computers from the modems?

You need to move up to a 2 port WAN router. One that comes to mind is the Netgeag FVS538, supports load ballancing too. Will auto roll to the other if a connection goes down.

With your current setup you will need to setup a DNS server. Having seperate subnets they are not seeing each other.

I agree with blue. The routers are on different subnets which will have different gateways. Computers must be on the same subnet to see each other without first going through a router.
If you only want certain computers going to the adsl line and certain ones going to the cable try this:
Turn off dhcp on both routers. Most routers will use the 192.168.x.1 address for the gateway. Set the other router to a x.x.x.2 gateway. On the computers use static ip addresses and manually assign the gateway address for the corresponding router you want to use.

I did this off the top of my head. Never done it before in real life. If you do try this please let me know if it works.
