Wireless Router Hookup to DSL Modem

Specs: Windows XP, 2.52GHz/768MB
I currently have a Westell DSL modem hooked up to my desktop computer with a USB cable to gain access to the Internet. The DSL modem also has an Ethernet connection, but for whatever reason I was unable to connect to the Internet using an Ethernet Cable. I also want to be able to use my laptop to access the Internet using a Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router. The Router has an Ethernet connection only.

Can I connect the DSL modem's Ethernet outlet to the Wireless Router's Ethernet outlet using an Ethernet cable to receive a wireless transmission from the Router to my laptop while, at the same time, still being able to have a connection to the Internet on my desktop using the USB cable?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

try it and see what happens. That seems like standard configuration: I've used usb-cable network interfaces with my dsl modem and it works.
