Why My Synology Router is Not Working with NETGEAR DM200 Modem

I recently bought a Synology wireless router like a week ago. I already had a Netgear DM200 modem from my previous service provider and it was working well so decided to keep it. Last night when I sat down to configure my router along with the Netgear modem, nothing happened. I mean my Synology router would not pick any signals when it is driven by the modem. Is it weird or some kind of technical glitch? Please help me out here and tell how can I fix it?
