You haven't mentioned what type and model of modem you have plugged into that router. It's not a modem/router, as you probably know. It is alledgedly designed to accept USB ADSL modems in addition to the usual Ethernet Cable modems, but IME it rarely does! So if you're not using it with a cable service, you may have difficulties.

If you are using a seperate modem and router, then you won't get very far if the two are not connected to each other!! Bit like trying to drive a car without an engine in it...
