Default Setting up a nested router

I need help setting up a nested router. I have a DLink DI-514 router that I want to use for my server. I also have a Linksys router that I've been using for a long time that I have the rest of my network on. To make my server function I need to change the status of several of my ports and I don't want to mess with the ports on the Linksys. So I think I need to have the Dlink connected to the modem and the Linksys connect to the DLink, but how do I make this work?
