Add additional router to R6080

I'm attempting to add an additional router to my R6080 and am having no luck.

 

I want to add an Asus to it and I need the Asus to be plugged into the Netgear.  The Asus will run behind a VPN while the Netgear will not.

 

When I plug the Asus into the Netgear I cannot get an IP for it and it doesn't even get recognized by the Netgear.  But if I plug the Asus into the cable modem and the Netgear into the Asus it works just fine.  But then both routers would be behind the VPN and that's not what I need.

 

I've checked the settings multiple times and I've searched but I still haven't been able to find what I need to do.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

In essence, you are trying to do something that "breaks" your network. You can't just string two routers together.
