|The reasoning for the switch is theoretically it enables all lines to share the same bandwidth without impedance to each other... ie I have ten meg inet connection and the switch gives all lines out a ten meg inet...|
Your 10 Mbps internet connection is shared by all clients whether connected to the switch or the router's LAN ports.
Correct config should be as follows:
Modem >> Router 1 >> Router 2 >> Switch >> clients
Alternately, you could setup as follows:
Modem >> Router 1 >> Switch >> Router 2 & clients

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
