Wireless Problem

I recently moved house and have just got a new ISP. They provided me with an Speedtouch 330 USB ADSL modem. I have gone through the installation process and everything is working fine. A problem has arisen however in setting up a wireless network so that my laptop (Dell XPS 1330) and XBOX 360 can also connect to the internet. I have a Belkin 54G wireless Router which I used in my previous house and it worked fine with my old modem by directly connecting to it. I have never tried to use this router connected to a PC, which is what I want to use it for now. The only sockets in the back are 5 ethernet ones, there is no socket for an ADSL lead to connect directly to the modem, so I thought it would be okay to run an ethernet lead out the back of my PC, into the router, and use wireless like that, but it doesn't work. Do I have to buy a new router or am I just doing something wrong? So far I have tried no configuration options in regards to the router.
