Qwest DSL - D-Link wireless router - confused?!?

This has me baffled. I have Qwest DSL with an actiontec modem. I also have a D-link 614+ wireless router for my roomates laptop. The wireless router has MAC address filtering so I wanted to run my desktop through that instead of straight into the DSL modem. I didn't know how much more security it would give me but I thought it couldn't hurt. Anyway when I hook my computer to the DSL modem, I have no problems. When I hook it up to the D-link, I can connect to both the d-link router and my DSL modem, but nothing in the outside world. I have name resolution problems. It can't resolve google or anything else. I have setup my rc.inet1.conf file as follows (for connecting through D-link router):

# Config information for eth0:
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]= my D-link IP address

# Default gateway IP address:
GATEWAY= my DSl modem address

When I connect it straight to the DSL modem I have rc.inet1.conf set as follows:

# Config information for eth0:
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]= my DSL modem address

# Default gateway IP address:
GATEWAY= my DSl modem address

I don't get why it would work one way and not the other since the gateway should be the same either way. I have my D-link setup to provide DHCP. Am I missing something?

We don't have an answer yet but more input as to the problem wouldn't hurt.
