Work.... Where else?
When you say it's not working, could you elaborate a little?

Do you get an IP from the router?
If so, what IP do you get?
Can you ping the IP of the router from the home network? (external IP)

Well it sounds like you're trying to use a cable router on an ADSL connection. Which I doubt will work. Can you send a picture of the connections, or explain a little more what the issue is please.
