you should type in 192.168.0.1.
In your request you have:

You have to resolve whether it's the router, the wireless in the router or the wireless in the mac.
The flashing orange may be an indication (what does the d-link guide say - look on the CD that came with it)
Try connecting the mac to the router with an ethernet cable - there should be one in the box. The mac will automatically pick up the router if the wireless isn't working. Can you connect to the net now?
If you can, then the router is working OK. If not then the router may well be corrupted.
Reset it by pushing the end of a straightened paperclip into the tiny hole on the back of the router. It may be labeled 'reset' but if not check the CD again to ascertain where it is.
Most likely you will have to reinsert you broadband log-in and password (and make any other changes that had been done. (wifi security setting etc.) If the transmitter comes on, you should see the network d-link?? appear in the airport menu.
If you still can't connect (or can't see the router in the airport menu) then you need to use another computer (or an iPhone or iPod Touch) to see if the transmitter can be seen by them. If not then it is most likely that the router is not transmitting. If they can, then the problem lies with the airport in the Mac.
That can be more problematic to resolve. So I'll stop now.
I get the feeling it is a security problem on your wireless access point. Try turning security off temporarily and see if the problem goes away.
The fact that you can connect to other networks tells me that your mac book network config is ok.
The reason the manual ip configuration doesn't work is because wireless connection connection has not succeeded. Kind of like not having the cable connected and expecting to find your DHCP server.
One thing that comes to mind and drove me completely insane once is your wireless network name (ssid) is case sensitive. So homenet is different from Homenet for example and you won't get any decent error messages.
With the security make it as simple as you can then slowly turn stuff back on (WEP and MAC filters for example) until it breakes again. Then you will know where your problem is.
I had trouble connecting my PC to an airport network that my mac was working just fine on. I found this forum to get an "equivalent network password" and it worked great. The pictures were helpful too. Go to the Airport Utility and Then the "Base Station" header on your mac. Then select "Equivalent Network Password". It will be super long and lots of letters and numbers. Worked for me! Here is the forum: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1790
When your MacBook Air is showing some performance issues, it can be caused
by either hardware or system problems. If you don't want to pay for
hardware upgrade, then try cleaning the system to improve the Macbook
speed. Learn more here: http://www.speedupmacbook.com/speed-up-macbook-air.html
Unless I am misunderstanding what you're trying to do, the router doesn't have drivers on your system (either PC or Mac). Your Macbook should have an ethernet port, and wire directly to the router. If it has Wi-Fi (I think they call it Airport, but I'm not a "Mac Guy"), it ought to still recognize your router as an available network, and allow you to login (I have a colleague with a Mac who logs in my PC LAN all the time).
