Motorola SB5100 network with Netgear router?

Before even beginning, I live in Shrewsbury, Mass. where they have theor own little cable co. It's bot Charter or Comcast. http://www.shrewsbury-ma.gov/cable/
Anyway, I have one PC with a SB5100 connected to SELCO's cable. For whatever reason my PC can't recognize a internet connection unless I then feed a Ethernet cable into the Netgear wireless router, then a cable into my PC's USB port.
I want to be host to my son's PC 3 rooms away.
The wireless signal was too weak so I ran a 15 ft Ethernet cable in the basement rafters. I surely thought that I could connect a cable from the Netgear directly into his PC.
It's not happening. And SELCO offers no support.
And I can't afford Geek Squad.
Isn't there a simple solution?
