You really can not plug 2 routers into the port on a DSL modem if it's just a DSL modem and not a Modem/Router. You can plug the 2nd router into one of the LAN ports on the 1st router and turn off DHCP in the 2nd router.

If your DSL works like AT&T's, you have 2 routers trying to log in to DSL PPPoE and that will not work.

If you can try this. DSL modem Directly into the WAN (Internet) port on the main router. The router should work fine. Then run a Cat-5 Cable from one of the typical 4 LAN ports on the 1st Router to a LAN port on the 2nd router. Before you do that, log into the 2nd router with a web browser (Typical IP is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and turn off DHCP on that 2nd router.

Unless I am misunderstanding the way you have them connected now, this should solve it. I have maybe 10 routers in my house all connected to the main router and using them for Access points.
