Question about D-Link DI 514 Wireless Router (DI-514)
The router is receiving the internet (I know this because I can plug directly from the cable modem to the computer just fine) but is not distributing the internet either by wireless or by Ethernet cable. I am open to any help you may have.
Sounds to me that the router is not recieving the signal from the Modem. Some Modems require you use a 'cross-over cable' to plug in a router like that (from modem to WAN on D-link). Make sure the IP address of the D-Link is on the same subnet as the Modem, i.e. the cable modem is preset with an ip address scheme (proabably 192.168.0.1 or something) and your router should have the same 192.168.0.x address depending on what the modem is).
Another thing you can try would be to "bridge" the modem to the router.

Tips for a great answer:
D-Link routers use the connection from your Internet service provider to create a wireless network for the various Wi-Fi-enabled devices in your home or office.
Once the router is installed, you can truly enjoy the portable capabilities of your laptop or other wireless device.
D-Link routers have a straightforward installation process, despite the advanced technology behind wireless equipment.
So there is no reason to wait around for a technician to help you install your wireless equipment.
Remove the cable that is attached to the "Internet" port on the rear of your DSL or cable modem.
Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the modem and plug the other end of the cable into the "Internet" port on the rear of the D-Link router.
Attach the power adapter to the port on the rear of the router and plug the adapter's cord into a outlet.
Remove the power cord from your modem and wait 10 seconds before plugging it back in. This will reinitialize your modem and force it to establish a connection to the D-Link router.
Your router will immediately begin distributing a wireless network with the "D-Link" network name.
Connect your computer to one of Ethernet ports on the rear of the router and open a Web browser.
Type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar and press "Enter." Enter "admin" into the username field and type "admin" again into the password field.
Click "OK" to open the wireless configuration page.
Click "Wireless Security Setup Wizard" to create a wireless password for your router's network. Click "Apply" to save the changes to the router's settings.
hope this helps
