Linksys Router Problem

Hey guys! I'm having issues with my new router (Linksys WRT160N). I followed everything on the startup disk, but on the 4th step when I have to plug in the router to power, I get an error that my router isn't connected properly. I have noticed that when I get to step 4, my internet connection changes from connected to trying to find the connection, and then goes to "limited or no connectivity". After this I get an error on the start up disk saying that my router is not connected properly.

I think I know what the problem might be, although I'm not really sure how to fix it. My modem is connected to my computer with a USB cable. When I unplug the USB, my I lose my internet connection, and my Local Area Connection totally disappears from the Network Connections Window. I do have ethernet cables going from my router to my modem (Arris Touchstone Telephony Modem) and my modem to my computer, though. I think I need to transfer the internet connection from the USB to the ethernet, but not sure how. I tried resetting the modem, but that didn't work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
