    You can only use one Modem (part of what many people call a "Router"). You can have any number of routers, switches, wireless access points etc after that modem.

    What is popularly know as a "Router" generally consists of a Modem which connects to your ISP, then a router/switch/Wireless Access Point/hardware firewall.
