Re: can connect via the enthernet cable but wont go...
1) Check your wireless network card to make sure its configured correctly and working properly. 2) If you're trying to get access thru a laptop be sure that your wireless network card is ON 3) Check if your wireless network is available to connect.

Nope. The router has and uses translations like ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) and other protocols that are a required part of most Ethernet networks via OSI layers. Plus it must assign IP's. Your network card just can't preform those task like sending data packets to and from to find their destination and keep them from being jumbled data. You may be able use it as hub, but you won't get wireless.
Wired or wireless? Check all cables, have you tried to connect with a Ethernet cable to the ISP modem, if it connects, try connecting via the cable to the D-link. Work you way through the devices one by one.If it connects via the cable, it's the computer's wireless adapter. Will other computers connect? Or contact your ISP to verify the signal, have a tech come out to analyze the signal. It may be outside. It's happened before, to me.
I am having exactly the same problem. It occurred on Sunday 17th. I have phoned Optus who seem unable to work out what has happened. It will work wirelessly but not recognise it when set up via ethernet cable.
You've omitted some information about your hardware & configuration & connections.
You should have:
1. cable-modem connected to cable socket (or DSL-modem connected to telephone wall-jack);
2. router connected via Ethernet cable to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem)
3. desktop computer connected via Ethernet cable to the desktop computer
4. wireless device (iPod or netbook or notebook) connected over the "ether" to the router -- this connection will stay "up" almost "forever" (as long as there is AC-power to the router and power to the wireless device).
first thing, we need to know what this d-link is... Is this a modem? or another router? Can you check its model #, perhaps at the back? How many ports does it have? To verify your internet connection, try connecting your computer to the dlink and check its IP address (Go to Start> Run> type "cmd". On the black window, type "ipconfig"). Do you have internet connection when your pc is straight to the dlink?
I'm thinking that dlink is conflicting with the linksys settings. If it is, we need to change the IP address of the linksys router. Post back what you find out.
Ok...I am a bit confused. You must have a modem to connect to the internet...whether you are broadband (cable/DSL/wireless), Dial-up or T-1 or higher (TSU/DSU).
This is how it should run once you are sure you have the modem...
Modem....to router...pc to router. If you have no router...then plug ethernet cable from your modem to your NIC card on PC.
You will have to make sure your network card is working (check for flashing green light and one solid green. Then you can goto COntrol panel and run the wizard to connect to the internet...it should work.
What kind of router do you have? Also, what is the model number of your modem?
there is no reason why you shouldnt connect at 108 mpbs, so there are only a coulple of things you can try, the first is to change the channel that your router transmits on within the router settings, although this should automatically be done by the router when it comes up against any interference.
Secondly try the adapter in a different usb port as USB 2.0 should be used and the port may not be recognised as a high speed port.
Double check the router connection transmition speeds is set at 108 mbps; as it would also be able to transmit at a lower speed of 54 mbps so as to be backward compatable with 54 mbps adapters
