You need to cascade the Dlink wireless router to your RV042.
Suppose your RV042 has a default IP Address of 192.168.1.1, and the DLINK IP uses 192.168.0.1. Your Physical connection is from the regular port of the RV042 going to the WAN/Internet Port of the DLink wireless router.
Once you do that, your Dlink router should automatically obtain an IP from the main router. If it did, configure your wireless settings and you should be able to connect via wireless.
This is just one way to cascade your router to another router.

The issue may be due to the existence of two (2) DHCP servers; 1 in the Cisco 675 and the 2nd in the DLink DI-524. You need to disable the Cisco's DHCP server function and assign static IP add & config to the DLink WAN config. This way it will only be the DLink handing out IP adds to the network.
The workaround. Install your original configuration/setting without the DLink DI-524 - PC direct to the Cisco 675 (I am assuming through Ethernet ports). Verify that indeed you are connected to the Internet and can surf the net, check e-mails, etc. Check your Networking Connection Status. Log down your PC's IP Add, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS. For purposes of discussion, let's call this "N1".
After your Internet connection has been verified with your PC directly connected to the Cisco, remove the direct connection and connect the DLink DI-524 in between the Cisco router and your PC.
Log in to the DLink and modify WAN parameters using the "N1" configurations/settings.
It might be of help to disable any security (WEP WPA, MAC etc) at least while configuring.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Well I believe wat ya need to do is simply obtain a NEW "Account" with NEW Logon & Password with a NEW Internet Service Provider.
Then you set up the modem to connect to the new ISP, at the NEW ISP's address, with the NEW Password & Logon.
When you got the modem ya should have got a "Setup" CD that should walk ya thru the connection routine...
Below is a link for a "Users Manual" that should help you get connected.
