Is it possible to use two MI424WR routers on the same network?

It is, although unless your network has special requirements, it is not recommended to operate more than one router as a router. The other router should operate as a Switch/Access Point.

 

What are you looking to accomplish?

My wifi is not strong enough to access throughout the entire house. I happen to have an extra wifi router and figured if it would work I would not have to buy anything else.

You might try setting up as a bridge/repeater rather than another router so to avoid needing to do network address translation for the network behind the second router. 

 

Have a look at this link - it may help.
