Well - Seems no one has ideas so far as to WHY the device is there and functioning but Not Accessible ... BUT ... I solved my issue in another way.
I dragged out an older modem I own and mothballed that has multi out Lan ports out, Powered it up - hooked up the DSL line - and connected directly to the Belkin - looked wireless on laptop and there is was. Mac addresses added. Restored new modem set up and on with life we go..
I'm Still interested in why the single port modem with or without 5 port block will not see the Belkin even though the Belkin carries the signal both directions. Would like to know just for my own understanding.
Thanks to all those who looked

This all depends on how the network in the different modems are set up.
If say the old modem used IP adresses in the 192.168.0.x range this would allow 192.168.0.2 to communicate with the rest of the equipment.
If the new modem uses IP adresses in another range, say 192.168.1.x range this would prevent communication between something in 192.168.0.x range and something in 192.168.1.x range
You could kinda compare it to two different languages. They cant talk to eachother.

Thanks - That makes sense -
I guess I just assumed that if it was functioning both directions that it should have been found.
So in my case:
If the modem is 192.168.5.1
and the Belkin Access point is currently 192.168.0.2 -- I should change it to 192.168.5.X as available ?
and the D :Link that receives its signal at 192.168.0.30 to 192.168.5.30 ?
and the other Netgear that distributes the signal from the D Link to the shop from 192.168.0.214 to 192.168.5.214 ?
Is is odd that the system works with the current off parity of Addresses ?
If I change all of them to the "Same Language" do you think the network will work better ?

All the devices should be on the same subnet. I personally would change the modem to 192.168.0.x instead of changing the other 3 devices (unless you don't have access to the configuration on the modem).
