What is the impact of setting up 2 separate routers into one switch?

I am reconfiguring our office and want to use a verizon DSL modem in bridge mode plugged into a DELL 2808 power connect switch, which in turn has two routers plugged into it (the DELL) with Static IP's and DHCP enabled on both routers.  One router will serve our private business office, and the other will serve a public area for guests to log in using wireless.  It hasn't worked so far.  The switch is not in managed mode.  Shouldn't this configuration work?  Aren't the packets forwarded thru the internet ports into the switch and out past the Bridge mode modem?  Have I caused some sort of packet storm or loop?  Thank you.
