You are using WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router. Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router. Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router. On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in. Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.
verify your internet modem it connected to the WAN port on your WRT160N, login to the WRT160N and go to the "status" tab and see what your internet status is. You should see a page similar to this: http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o64/arcticpaws/linksys.png Verify your router has an Internet IP address. If it does not, then you haven't finished configuring your router. If it does have an IP address, then turn off your firewall and see if you can get connected that way.
I recommend calling your ISP and have them synch your new cable modem with their connection. They may need to register the hardware address of your new modem for them to be able to recognize it and grant internet access.
If that is the case you must do a hard reset first. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds then unplug the power for 30 seconds and plug it back in. Make sure your computer is connected to port 1 and your modem is connected to internet port of the router. Try to set it up again.
