Can you access the Internet when cabled to the D-Link router? Does the D-Link say it's connected to the Internet?

You have a wiring problem. The ethernet cable from the WAN or Internet port on the DI-624 router goes to the DSL modem ethernet port. The 4 LAN ports go to the various computers.
If you accidentally connect one of the 4 LAN ports to the DSL modem, *ONE* of the computers will get the IP address that the DI-624 should get from the ISP.

Hi, I think that might be the problem alright. The wireless router does not have a WAN port for the ethernet cable from the modem. It only has an ADSL port and 4 LAN ports. I presume this means the router is not compatible with a cable modem?

Correct. You need a cable-ready router. You have the wrong model.

What is meant by "an ADSL port" then? RJ45? On the router?

Hi, Ye , the ADSL port is a normal phone port (RJ45 i yhink). I'm going to get a replacement router tomorrow thanks for the help

the ADSL port is to plug a phone cable into. Normally RJ11 I think (six-pin and narrower than RJ45).
