You could connect one of the outputs on your provider's router to the input on your own router. Then disable the wireless on the provider's router so that only your own router is broadcasting.

Xergiiok was nearly right. Connect the two together via a LAN cable between LAN ports, give your router a static IP on the same subnet as the ISP router, turn DHCP off on your router. Disable firewall on your router and you should be set.
 


Many such routers prom ISP's have an option to function in "modem mode". Activate that and your router should act as if it were connected directly to the network.
