What are you trying to accomplish with such a bizarre setup? Your "modem" is clearly also a router. So what exactly are you trying to accomplish with two routers? –  David Schwartz Feb 12 '13 at 6:18

You don't want two routers in the same LAN. Decide whether you want to use your modem as a router (and your router just as a switch and/or access point) or you want to use your router as a router (and your modem just as a modem) and configure your network appropriately. What you have now makes no sense.

If you decide to use your modem just as a modem:

  1. Set your modem to bridging mode.

  2. Connect your modem's Ethernet port to the router's Internet/WAN port.

  3. Don't use any other ports on your modem. If it has Wifi, don't use it.

If you decide to use your modem as a router and your router just as a switch and/or access point:

  1. Disable your router's DHCP server.

  2. Don't use your router's Internet/WAN port for any reason.

  3. Connect a LAN port on the router to the modem or switch.
