The cable modem needs to be connected to the router to share Internet. The cable modem goes to the port labelled Internet or sometimes it is also labelled as WAN.
If you need further help, provide details such as the model number of the router and your Internet service provider.

You will need to assign a different ip address to the modem - Iam assuming that both the router & modem are using the same ipaddress 192.168.1.1? If that is the case, then assign 192.168.1.2 tothe modem.

Can you clarify the problem?
Consdier first that both devices are NAT firewalls and your ISP probably only allows one address. So you would need to put one behind the other. This may not work like you plan. PCs behind the second will not be seen on the LAN by PCs on the first.
The N1 is a very good router. Consider relocting it to a more central location.
Another trick is to locate it near a central wall if it is block. By adding 1 remote antenna and drilling through that wall witha short antenna cable you can get much better coverage on the other side.
It could also be an ethernet problm 1. Power down SMC, plug WAN of SMC to LAN of router and power up SMC. If both devices show link lights and activity the hardware is OK. If not you need a "crossover" cable.
Hope that helps.
