Re: Internet went down; they told me I can't have a router conne
said by RLBL:You can have as many other routers connected as you wish BUT Rogers will not help you to troubleshoot the SMC with the other router(s) connected.
I am not sure this is entirely true. I had another router plugged into the SMC and had two different wireless networks in my house.
Never really had an issue until the SMC failed. Now I do the exact same thing with my Cisco. In fact I now have 3 wifi networks in the house because I added another router.

Make sure that DHCP is disabled in your own router. and plug the cable from the port on the rogers router into 1,2,3,4 on your own router, rather than the WAN/Internet port.
You only have to do that if the SMC router is not in bridge mode. If the SMC router is in bridge mode you can connect your Linksys router directly to the WAN port of the router.
