What do you do when two LANs fall in love and want to join together?

Some friends live in a house that's been split in half into a duplex type situation. Each side has their own internet connection and its own LAN. Now they want a LAN to connect the two sides of the house together. When they connect the two routers with a crossover cable router A takes it upon itself to assign the IP's for both LANs. How would we set it up so that doesn't happen, aside from assigning individual DNS ranges for each router? They both use Charter Cable, but don't want to combine services as they are both at the top speed and sharing bandwith is not an option.
