Power all off.
Wait a few minutes.
Power on the modem and wait for it to stabilize.
Power on a laptop. Once it's stable, connect an Ethernet cable to it.
After 10-15 seconds you should have an internet connection. If not, please do the following:
Click on Start then Run or press Window key (next to left Ctrl key) +R and paste the following into the Run box, exactly as shown, including double quotes:
cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"
and press ENTER.
A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close.
If you don't have a Run selection off the Start menu, see here: Enable Run Command on Windows 7 or Vista Start Menu
Also go to Device Manager, expand Network Connections and make sure Ethernet connection is not disabled.

indicates that you are not getting an IP address from your router....
Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.251.80(Preferred)
1 Make sure that you have each laptop computer connected via Ethernet cable to your router
2 Make sure that your modem is connected to your router
power cycle both your modem and then your router and then boot up your laptop computers (do it in that order please)
let us know how things go
run the cmd that Rich gave you previously and post us the output

Tha'ts good to hear..well done
The Plug off and Plug in actually worked....
I am having some difficulty, however in understanding "another issue" that you mention...
As I understand it:
You can now connect to the Internet all your laptop computers; either by using an Ethernet cable or by using their wi fi facilities.
There is obviously something extra that you are wanting to achieve, but I do not understand what it is.
Can you explain in some detail please exactly what you are trying to achieve..that is to say the functionality you need, but cannot currently obtain
