Using two Modem+Routers?

Specs: Macintosh
I have an ADSL connection in India. I think there is a problem with line quality, the only device that I can find that will connect to the DSL is the crappy Beetel modem-router they gave me. I also have a Belkin modem-router, dual band N, but it will not connect to the ADSL. What I would like to do is use the Beetel as just a modem, and have all other functions, DHCP, routing, Wireless, provided by the Belkin. Is this possible? If just disable DHCP and wireless on the Beetel, and connect it to a lan port on the Belkin, will this work? I'm reluctant to make changes to the Beetel without a high chance of success because disrupting my ADSL would be bad and getting tech support here is a nightmare.

That could work but I don't know if it's going to make any improvements. Try is the way you described.

I would suggest you backup the Beetel config so you can restore it if need be.

You would want to put the Beetel into bridge mode if possible. This way is just acts as a modem and the router will get the wan ip from the isp.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
