The dlink n150 has an ADSL (RJ-11) WAN port, so you can't plug your Internet LAN connection into that.
You would have to plug the LAN cable into one of the LAN ports. You might have to get funky with NAT in order to make that work....
....unless you are provided with a private IP (10.0.0.1 through 10.255.255.255 or 172.16.0.1 through 172.31.255.255 or 192.168.0.1 through 192.168.255.255)
If this is the case then:
- Just plug the cable into D-Link LAN ports
- Give the router an IP address on the subnet the ISP has given you.
- Disable DHCP
- Enable Wireless for your phone to connect
