Can you try and reset the router once. I guess that should help . There should be a reset button behind the router and the reset procedure should be present in the manual

It does sound like you may need to upgrade firmware. Not sure what router you have but you can download firmware & install from the router's website.
You might like to try:
1. Disable Windows Firewall
2. In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then the LAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" button.
3. If you have any third party software, I would get rid of this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Services menu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.
Interestingly, Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - you could see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless. It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code & see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption.
