The modem Time Warner gave me several years ago was dying, I took it in, they gave me a Cisco modem, I plugged it into the computer, works fine, so then I plugged it into my airlink 101 wireless router, the computer recognizes the router but says there is no internet access, i.e. the modem and router are not communicating. Why would change of modem cause lack of communication with the router, is there something different about modems now compared with roughly 5 years ago? And what can i do to fix it so i can have wireless access again? If it matters, I have no protection on my wireless (because I never figured out how).

No wireless problems before this.

You may need to clone your PC's mac address in the router in order for the modem to recognize it as a legitimate client. And once you get it working you should look to enable the security on your wireless connection. Without it you not only allow any passing leech to suck on your internet, you open up your own PC to them as well.
