new router

Hi, hoping that this is an easy one. i bought my son xbox live for xmas. So I went out and bought a router so that I could connect to the internet for this to work. I have followed the instructions on the setup disc and everything seems to be loading correctly then at the end I get a message that states "cannot connect to modem". Is there anything that I should be looking at? My computer is a relatively new Dell and my router is a linksys model befsr41 wired. Any advice would be appreciated.
thanks in advance.

Check your firmware version on the router.
