Dlink ADSL modem to setup for wireless cable internet connection

I have a DSL-G604T Dlink ADSL Modem cum Wireless Router and previously I tried connecting it to make my cable modem work wirelessly for my laptop and it works. I used ethernet cable to connect the modem and the router together. However now I tried all ways to make my cable modem work wirelessly but it's not successful. Even after setting up and resetting the modem.

My laptop can detect the wireless router but cant surf the net.


Anyone has any idea on how to solve this problem?

Thanks!

Pls help!!!

Get a regular cable router. This one won't work.

Its a weird solution but it worked.

Firstly, Off the cable modem.
Secondly, Disbable the wireless connection in Windows
Thirdly, Reset the router
Following which, on the cable modem again,
After that, on the router again
Lastly, Enable connection.
