    if u are referring to the web config this is no surprise. if you pull up the other router you session will have to be reautheticated over and over as you pop back and forth btw the web configs. they may even cross over (you log in and theres the config page for the other router.) this will be way off if u werent talking about connecting to the router via web config. please elaborate if you were or not

    chaining routers can be a challenge, but the SIMPLE way is
    modem----(wan)Router#1(lan)-----(lan)Router#2(lan)--- other systems
    Notice, the wan port on router#2 is left EMPTY. It needs to have DHCP disabled,
    so that Router#1 provides the DHCP service.

    Disconnect the two router, connect one computer to router#2
    Login to the config page using the default router address,
    Disable DHCP and save the config.

    Now rewire as above and you're good to go
