Weird Issue Between Modem/Router

#1
[HR][/HR]Problem crept up at my Mom's house. Both hers and her girlfriend's laptops' wireless cards stopped working for no discernible reason. They wouldn't detect any networks at all.

Mom has Verizon DSL, so it comes in through the modem. Works fine, I'm on her laptop right now typing this.

After I updated the wireless card drivers, it started showing the home network. Running a Linksys WRT150N at factory default settings (I asked her to reset it during some over-the-phone troubleshooting).

Connecting the ethernet from the modem to the router, I can connect to the network just fine, but I get no internet access. Running the troubleshooter tells me there's a connectivity issue with my modem. Seems odd, as it's working just fine providing me this direct connection.

Mom also has a Linksys WRT310N that I left behind, and I've tested both. They each give the same "No Internet Access" issue. She even has two modems, I've tried them both and they both work fine when connecting the laptop directly, but something goes wrong when the router's thrown into the mix.
