OK next step is to reset the router.

At the back is a small hole maybe marked reset in teeny writing
Insert a paper clip to depress the button there
Hold it for a few seconds
Allow the router to reboot and then try again..

You say that the old modem connects quite happily ?

It is, in a way, more fun rebuilding a system like this :)
