Re: Can Wireless be turned off?
Go to http://192.168.1.1 with your browser to access the router setup. You will be asked for a username and password. By default, the username is left blank and the password is "admin". You can then click on the "wireless" tab to access the wireless settings and turn off the router's wireless function. From the "network mode" dropdown list on the "basic wireless settings" tab, select "disable".
You can download the router manual here for full information:
On your searchbar, type 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1
When your router internals screen comes up, you need to set a WEP key password to protect it, it should be 13 characters long. After that your router is enabled securely, only you can access it, keep a note of your WEP somewhere safe, and the hex key thats generated. You will then need to type this in to wirelessly connect again.

Re: Can Wireless be turned off?
Go on the router settings menu(usually on the LAN URL: http://192.168.x.1/ where x is usually 1 or 0) look for a wireless or WLAN tab look for something like "enable wireless networking" and uncheck it/change the value to "no" save the settings, the router will reboot. do the opposite to enable it. this should not mess with your settings.

Sometimes the modem-computer-router not "sync" together. Try this. 1-hook the computer to modem. Internet yes? good. 2-hook the computer to router and check you IP. If it like 192.168.1.2, the router's DHCP is working. 3-reset router to default setting. turn off all and turn on modem, router, computer. keep me posted.
You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh). This often happens when you have a large network.
power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency. Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.
