I have had my wireless for a couple years. It has always worked fine. Six months ago, my connection has worked (stayed connected) less and less and now is at the point I can't connect at all. I could call Geek Squad, but they will charge 169.00 and if it is the box, I'd rather get a new one instead of having them come out to tell me that. It can't be cable because I am able to send this when I disconnect and put the connection directly into the computer. Please let me know if you can help me.

It is not the problem with the router. It is the problem with the wireless adapter on your computer. Open Network connections and look for Wireless network connection. If it is not there then open the Device Manager and look for Wireless network adapter under Network adapters. It seems that wireless adapter on your computer is not working or it is not detected by your computer. If you have external wireless adapter then unplug it and replug it.
It is possible that a neighbor purchased a wireless access point that it on the same channel and they are competing. Change your wireless channel. You could also try a hard reset. Instructions at D-Link's website. Good luck!
try updating the firmware to the latest version.
it may fix any bugs or wireless issues in the update.
Sounds like you need to configure the PC's USB wireless adaptor. The settings must be the same as the router. If you use a WEP password on the other connections then you need to have the same password on the USB wireless adaptor.
This makes me think that the wireless in either the router or the laptop has failed. Will the laptop connect ok if at another hot spot? if so, then you may have a problem with the router. If the laptop will not connect when somewhere else, then the wireless in the laptop has a problem. that could be a problem with the internal wireless card, or a driver file corrupted. Check the wireless card through the device manager to see if windows reports it working properly, and make corrections there as may be necessary. If windows reports all is ok, you may need a new card.
