Question about NetGear WIRELESS-G WGR614 802.11G WIRELESS ROUTER ($20.00 M.I.RebateTill 06/30/2004) (NETWGR614)
have alook at Clearwire's webpage (here), where they describe different setups for your router.
I personally would always prefer to connect the modem to the router via a cable. The cable you will need is an Ethernet (CAT5) cable and the connectors at the end look like this (compared to a phone cable:
You will connect the output of your modem with the WAN port of your router. This port is usually separated form the 4 other LAN ports, which connect to your computers, printers, etc.
(You didn't specify which router model you have, so I can't give you more details, but it should be very obvious, when you look at the back of your router.)
For the initial setup of your router, you should use a second Ethernet cable connected to one of the LAN ports of the router and to the Ethernet port of your computer.
If you need help with the wireless setup of your router, you have to look either in your manual of give me the details of your router (like the model and version, i.e. Netgear WGR614) and I'm happy to assist you.

As asked above, why would you want the wired router and the wireless router on the same network?
The direct answer to your question(s) is found on Netgear's website. http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/965/kw/wpn824/r_id/166
The key is to turn off the Netgear DHCP, and give it an address that is unreachable by the Linksys DHCP ie if the Linksys gives out IP addresses starting at 100 or 101, you set your IP address to 99, turn off the DHCP, and plug it into the network NOT using the WAN port, ever. We tend to start at 251 or 221 just for clarity's sake.
The point is you answered your own question. The Netgear wired and wireless works fine. One piece of equipment and better reporting statistics....what are you missing?

Most likely the router is not configured for dhcp or is not renewing to pull an address from your new provider. You will need to login to the router and check the WAN ip address settings. Choose dynamic ip address (it may be currently set for for static or another option based on your previous provider). Once you choose and save the settings, click to renew the WAN ip. If you were already set for DHCP and the address is correct, you may still have an issue with DNS,.. the DNS addresses may be incorrect or non existent. If you have doubts about DNS addresses,.. you may change them to 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 (opendns) and they will work with most providers (including comcast)
I hope this helps,.. if you need details,.. please leave a comment and I can supply more.

connect your computer to netgear modem alone and check for the ip address in the computer
(make sure that you have selected "assign ip automatically" in computer)...
to open command prompt type "cmd" and hit enter in run box...
then you can check ip address by typing "ipconfig" in command prompt...
make a note of IP adress or ipV4 address found under the heading "ethernet adapter local area connection"
it might be 192.168.X.X
now connect only the belkinrouter and check for the ip address using the same steps above...
it might be 192.168.2.X
make a note of that...
now compare both the ip addresses if they both have the same value in first three places...that is
192.168.2.... or something like 192.168.1.... or 192.168.0.... then you are facing with double NAT issue...
all that you need to do for that is to change the ip address of belkin router...
if it is 192.168.2.1 change into something like 192.168.15.1...the issue will get resolved....if not you can reset the belkin
router by pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds using a toothpick when the power is turned on...
