When i say modem i mean Router.

It gets one ethernet from my modem and turns it into 4 plus wireless.

I want to know if i can plug another router with 4 into the router i have already. using it as a switch.

Thanks

Yep, just make sure you assign a static ip to the 2nd router (the 1 not connected to the broadband - and also make sure you turn off dhcp aswell) ...
