This could be because you have get dynamic IP with DHCP. A possible 

First the phone adapter gets an IP from your ISPs DHCP server.

When you disconnect the phone adapter, the D-Link router needs an IP 
from the DHCP server. Since the D-Link router has a different MAC 
address it will get a different IP address.

Depending on the DHCP servers config you may get a new IP address every 
now and then even if you don't change your setup.

With a dynamic IP you simply need to accept that your IP may change at 
any time and that it is likely to change whenever you change your setup 
or tur off the router or phone adapter (wichever connects to the DSL modem).

If this is a problem, you could use a dynamic DNS service to get a fixed 
host name even though you have a dynamic IP.

Please note that I don't know if the above scenario is applicable to 
your situation.
