> Go Status and Under WAN check if you have values in the IP address. If you have value, then that mean you have an Internet connection by now. if you got all 0.. try calling your Dlink manufacturer to assist you on conneting your router to the Internet without running the CD or by doing it manually in short..

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
1) does it lock up completely or will it work hard lined when wifi fails?
2) do all devices wireless fail or just a single device?
3) do you lose connection to the wireless completely or keep the connection but lose access to the internet? (confusing but very different to me)
in the end you could narrow down the problem but if you have already reset to factory defaults and set back up again and again then it may be time to retire that old router.

Have you secured your Linksys from unauthorized access?
The encryption code protects your wireless router from unauthorized access. The wireless card in your computer/laptop needs to be configured with the router's encryption settings before the computer/laptop can access the router. For details on configuring the wireless router and the wireless card, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
It seems like your router is configured once without any issues. Ignore that error message if you are connected with the internet. The setup couldnt find the Network adapter or the router because it is know more a factory default settings. It is been configured already
If router is brand new you should have a set up disk. the set up disk will walk you through it or you might log onto Belkin site to see a walk through set up. If you can access internet from modem to router to internet. That means router is functioning properly. To go completely wireless you will need to secure your network and setup your access codes. Definitely use the setup disk to do this. A unsecured wireless network is a nightmare waiting to happen. Good luck
Turn the modem power back on. Wait two minutes until the lights are stable.
Turn the router power back on. Wait one minute until the lights are stable.
Turn the computer power back on.
Open an Internet browser, and type http://192.168.0.1.
