Dear Loud Nouises,
Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.
Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.
Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.
This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.

SOURCE: connecting to sky broadband
In general the Wan port of the router gets
connected to the modem (box supplied by your internet service provider or ISP) where the computer used to connect and the
computer connects to the switch portion of the router which often has 4 or more
ports. The router has configuration options that must be set to comply
with your internet service providers (ISPs) requirements. These can often be found on his support web site.
If you can provide the link to the website I can assist with the
search. Otherwise I will need the name of the ISP. If this ISP is cable
related like Road Runner I will need the associated cable provider. I
will also may need to know the country, city and state in which you are
located as some ISPs have geographic differences in equipment.
Depending on what that information determines I may also need to know
the Manufacturer and Model of the Modem -- probably the box supplied by your ISP. It would also be helpful to
know if you got the router used or new. Used routers may have been
configured by their previous owner and require additional changes to
new routers with factory default settings.
All of the above information may lead to the determination that maybe we must enter a static IP address into the router, maybe we need to provide for PPPoE login for the router, maybe we need to configure the modem to allow the router to perform the PPPoE login, and several other such items. This is probably not a one reply solution.
To provide detailed information concerning that I will need to know the model number of your Belkin Router.

Looks like when you reset the router you have lost all yur configuration and back to the default factory settings.
Bridge the 5100 first.
1. In your web browser browse to »192.168.0.1 This address will be located on a yellow sticker on the bottom of your modem.
2. The first screen will ask you for your Modem Access Code. This also will be located on the same yellow sticker.
3. Select Advanced from the blue buttons on the left.
4. Click the PPP locations button.
5. The modem may ask your for the Modem Access Code again. If so type it in again and click continue.
6. Select the radio button labeled, "Bridged Mode (PPPoE is not used)"
7. Click Save Changes.
8. A "PPP Location Warning" page will come up. Click "Change PPP Location."
9. A "Restart Needed" page will come up. Click "Restart"
10. Reboot your computer and and then connect the router
