Question about Computers & Internet
Well most likely if you're running Windows XP you have an older computer. Which means the computer may only operate on 802.11a or b or g and the router may be only operating on 802.11n standard. Your laptop doesn't operate on N therefore you can't see the 802.11n network. Either buy a new computer or you can buy a wireless N adapter to attach to the computer.

Hey Raj - Unplug your modem and router. After 60 seconds plug your modem back in. When the lights return to normal (except the activity light) , plug your router back in. Give it 10 seconds and try it. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DO NOT RATE YET. Just add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

SOURCE: Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655
The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.
Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:
1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.
So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.
So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.
You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.
HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.
