Wireless router won't let me connect.

Cable Modem issue. When I am hooked up to good old Comcast through my Motorola Surfboard modem using the USB connection, life is great. Flawless internet surfing. But recently I decided to hook up a wireless router and spread the love throught the house. Problem: My modem won't recognize a connection with the network adapter connection.

I have a Dlink DFE-540TX adapter. All is well with it, according to MS Device manager.
The modem shows by its flashing little light that it has PC activity. But when I open a browser I get nothing but DNS errors. I need the ethernet connection to set up the wireless modem (Dlind DI-514).
I have updated the driver to the network adapter. I have uninstalled any and all the Surfboard modem drivers. Nothing.
So I revert back to USB and connect to the web and stare angrily at the new router/access point box knowing there is only little mystery thing I have missed in the connection.
