Default Newbie confusion over too many DHCP server and firewalls

Is it important to have so many, or is it reasonable to turn the modem

It's certainly unnecessary (and maybe undesirable) for you to have two
DHCP servers; two firewalls doesn't sound like too bad a plan, in
principle at least.

But are you sure that your modem is what's doing it? Modems that I've
come across are just that, modems, with no other functions in.

Could you post makes, models etc for your various bits of kit?
