Who's your internet provider and what's the brand of your modem?
If there is no ip address conflict between the modem and the router, everything should just be straight-forward. Just try to connect everything...power up the modem, let it stabilize...power up the router and start your pc..that should be connecting.

If not, there may be a need to clone the mac address of your NIC to the router.

I also have a D-Link with an RCA cable modem. Can you be a little more detailed as to exactly what type of problem you are experiencing. I agree with some of the other posters that sometimes just turning off the modem works. However, I would recommend that you unplug the power going to both the modem and router and wait about 15 seconds and then plug them both back in. This should cause a total reset of both devices. Then right click on "my network places" and go to properties. You will most likely see your NIC adapter once you click on properties. Right click on that device and go to properties again, you should see at this point under  the "general" tab of the device "internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Click on this area and click its properties. This should bring you to a screen where you can select "obtain an IP address automatically." Select this and then click apply. You may be asked to reboot. Hopefully after the reboot, the router should pick up automatically your IP address (if you have DHCP enabled) and you should be surfing away.

I simply change my Router(Linksys BEFW 1154V4) to D-Link DI-514. Problem solve. Thanks everyone.
