If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSL or cable modem.
I think there is no need to replace the ADSL2+ Router. Belkin is fine and should work well in combination with the D-Link Router and you would get the downlink data rate up to 300Mbps. I recommended that you use Belkin Router as ADSL Modem and Dlink to provide wireless access. (Instead of buying ADSL Modem) So, all you have to do is : - -Turn-off wireless signal of the Belkin modem. -Connect the Dlink Router to the Modem (Belkin) through CAT6 Cable. -Configure the Dlink Router, Secure it and Enjoy 300Mbps Data Rate.
(In this way your Belkin will serve as ADSL Modem and Dlink would be the wireless router)

I'm unsure of the exact part number here but using the model number I checked the manual. This looks like it's just an access point which extends a current network you have. If you only have your laptop, this device and your internet modem it may not give you the wireless connectivity you're looking for. On a normal setup you would plug your modem into a router, plug your laptop into the router and set it up with all your DSL/Cable connection information as well as wireless on/off. You can then unplug from the router and continue life. with this one it's only connecting to an existing setup (another router or another wireless network) and extending it.
If you are looking for a solution to give you a router that connects to your modem and gives you wireless or adding multiple devices on a single connection I would recommend returning this and getting an all-in-one router such as this: http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Routers/Linksys-E1000-Wirelessn-router_stcVVproductId97826160VVcatId551966VVviewprod.htm?icid=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn&src2=linksys-specs-e1000-learnmore-btn
I Think you ISP must be DSL. Your internet is working with the old router when it is in bridge mode. Check the IP address of your computer when it is connected directly to the modem and NOT in the bridge mode. Suppose the IP address is 192.168.X.Y. After that connect your computer to the ethernet port of the router. DO NOT connect the modem to the router. check the IP address of the computer again. Suppose the IP address of the computer is 192.168.A.B. Now make sure that both the IP addresses are not in the same range that means X is NOT equal to A. If they are same, then open the set up interface of your router and change the Local IP address of the router. that will help. For More information Click Here
Unplug the router for ten seconds and plug it back in, it needs to reset. Some routers have a reset button. I often wait longer than ten seconds, I find a beer is usually the right amount of time. Sometimes the modem needs a reset also; unplug everything, then plug back in sequence, with the modem first, the wait, then the router, wait, then turn on your computer. That system works for any brand modem and router.
Connect using Lan Cable be sure to enable java on your Browser. Use ONLY IE: some router refuse other browser. SET your PC on a static IP address on SAME subnet as your router (but of course different IP). If subnet concept is NOT clear to just just ask here. When connected with router (on Lan Cable) check every setting (WPA-PSK) TKIP key, Broadcast / Channel etc. You can also disable every WLAN protection and restore it later. Activate WLAN connection WHEN you are STILL connected. Last but not least: SET your DNS IP address = your gateway IP (router)
you have to go in your router's setup screen (192.168.1.1) default password is admin, then you need to select the internet connection type as PPPoE, thype your username, which could be your primary email with your ISP, and your password, which could be the last 7 digits of your home phone number. If you cannot figure out your username/password, contact your ISP.
also make sure that your DHCP server is enabled in the router setup menu.
If you want to set up your Wireless security (highly recommended) go to http://www.cas411.com/ShowArticle.aspx?ID=68 to see how to do that step by step.
You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order.
1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless)
2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router.
3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled.
4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings.
This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router.
