Adding a second (Cable) router to my network

Hello all, I am somewhat of a neophyte at networking and I have a question. I have a small business network using a secure wireless router connected to my cable modem. We have a DVR security system which we would like to monitor remotely. I would like to keep the DVR separate from my secure wireless router for security reasons. My thought is to connect the DVR through a cable or wired modem into my cable modem. Do you folks think this will cause an issue with the wireless router which uses DHCP to determine the IP address? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

You can still connect the DVR to your "secured wireless router" but give it a static IP address outside of the DHCP range. One shouldn't affect the other.

You say the router is secure but for some reason you doubt it.
