Can't connect internet through the router

Specs: Windows Vista
I recently got married, and when I moved in with my new husband, we kept his internet provider, but I wanted to use my new wireless router with his modem. I can connect to the internet straight from the modem on both our PC and my laptop, and can connect to the wireless router (excellent strength). When I connect the modem to the router, however, the internet connection is lost. For some reason (I never had this issue with my old modem) I can not get the two to communicate with each other. I have tried resetting my router to factory default, and shutting everything down and going through the manuals step by step.
I can not get the USB connection to work with the modem (driver won't install/can't be found on the disk) and both the modem and my laptop only have one connecting port for the ethernet cable, so currently I can't connect the router to the modem and my modem to the computer at the same time.

Any suggestions on how to fix the connection from my modem to the router?
