Try this VLAN configuration and see if it works when you get the new router.
Switch A, Port 2 => modem, configured as VLAN 2 tagged
Switch A, Port 1 => Switch B, Port 1, configured as trunk
Switch A, Port 3-8 => clients, VLAN 4 tagged

Switch B, Port 1 => Switch A, Port 1, trunk
Switch B, Port 2 => Router WAN Port, configured as VLAN 2 tagged
Switch B, Port 3 => Router LAN Port, configured as VLAN 4 tagged
Switch B, Port 4-8 => clients, VLAN 4 tagged

Note that you should connect the router directly to the modem first, since you will need to make certain that the internet connection works before you run this setup.

Thanks again, will try that when I get the new router (hopefully by the weekend...)

Good idea with the ethernet splitter but unfortunately it won't really help in my particular circumstances. As long as I can get the VLAN shenanigans sorted though it'll do fine for now. Fingers crossed!
