Your router is a combined ADSL/modem router, your modem is a cable/DSL er..modem - the two are incompatible. You can link the laptops together using the router itself (or without, using an ad-hoc wireless network) but you won't be able to access the internet without an ADSL internet signal.

Though ICS might be the answer if you can use the modem but not the router; click here
