Router setup

I have Gen4 service with an HT1100 modem. wireless connectivy has become a real problem, and I am convinced I am setting someithng up wrong. My router is a D-Link 890L. When I set it up I changed the router address to, to avoid conflicts with the address for the modem. I set the device mode to Router, and the internet connection to DHCP. When I connect the router directly to the modem, and then connect my system to the router, I can't find the modem, either with ethernet or wireless devices. When I connect the modem directly to my system, and then connect the modem through a separate switch, I can find the modem on ehternet devices, but not the router, and on wireless devices, the router but not the modem. Should I be connecting from the modem to the router using Static IP, and, if so, what IP address and DNS should I specify?


Any help would be appreciated.

Hope that helps, let me know if you need further assistance.
