I cannot keep my connection to my wireless modem/router.
I set up the wireless router and it worked briefly, then the wireless light went out. Now I can't establish a wireless connection, I can only connect to the internet with the ethernet cord. When I unplug the router and plug it back up, the wireless light comes on and my computer detects the router but shortly after, the light goes back off and that is the end of my wireless connection. I am making sure that my wireless card is turned on and still can't detect the wireless signal.

Try rebooting both the modem and the router. It could be that the modem didn't pick up it's ip number when the internet went down. Then try pluggint you computer directly into the modem first to make sure it is setup and working properly. Then plug in the router (to the modem) and the PC plugged in directly to the router and check.
Once you have it connecting at that point then check the wireless settings on both the router and the pc. Then enable the wireless on the pc, unplug the LAN and switch to wireless network on the pc and see if it won't work.
If it works plugged in on the LAN but then not on the wireless then either your configuration isn't correct (ie wrong gateway ip number...gateway should be the same ip number as the router...ie 192.168.***.***) or perhaps the wireless part of the router died. It is possible for the wireless to die and the LAN (hard wired connection) to still work.
Flashing green means its trying to contact the modem. So, there is some problem with modem-router connection or with the modem.
Disconnect the modem from the router and connect the modem alonely to the desktop and check.
If you are unable to go online, restart the modem/reset the modem.
After that, connect the modem to the router, then reset the router (In the back side, U can see a reset button. Hold the button upto 10-15 seconds, lights will go off and it will vary). then, power off the router and after 10 sec, make it on.
Then it will go to default settings. Now, try to go online.

which lights keep blinking ?
I would do a factory reset - button on the back - hold for at least 10secs it should then reset back to the factory condition
connect the modem to the wan port
quite often the default settings may work with the modem.
post back a comment and detail the status of each light on the router
also the make and model of the modem and the status of each light on the modem
check the wireless settings of the router. Open the set up page of the router and make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled. If enabled then try to change the wireless channel of the router. if that doesn't work then try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Click Here for more info about routers
