Wireless Internet Works, Wired Connection Doesn't Work

Hi. I formatted both my laptop and desktop computer. When i did with my laptop, everything was great. Wireless still worked. Of course i have my linksys router connected to get the wireless.

I then formatted my desktop. Its a dell. When i did this, everything seemed great. However, i noticed that if i remove my wireless router and just connect my cable modem wired, it works. However, when i connect my wireless router, then my wireless internet works but my WIRED connection does not work. It has this message that says can't connect.

Can someone help me here? I don't think this has ever happened before. I mean, there were many times where my desktop got formatted and my wired internet worked and i could not get my wireless connection to work. But never had i had my wireless work and my wired connection not work. Can someone help me on this? The one thing i did this time was after i installed the drivers with my windows cd, i then deleted the old windows file that was about 25 gb. Could that be a reason?
