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!
The only computer I have is a Dell Insprion E1505 laptop and it is
connected to a "COMCAST" cable modem. Windows XP, not Vista is
installed. I purchased a LINKSYS WRT54G wireless router. I installed
the setup disk and connected the modem to the router, and the router to
the computer as step one, but when step two had me disconnect the
router from the laptop so it could connect via wireless network, it
just says "easylink advisor could not establish a wireless connection
with the router two laptops, a desktop PC and my son has Xbox live. I recently bought
the Linksys wireless-g router with speed boost and that didn't work. If
any of the laptops were on, the other wouldn't work and my son's Xbox
live would lag. I was thinking about exchanging it for the Linsys
wireless-N broadband router but then I read the reviews and they were
horrible. I need something of that sort but something that isn't known
for being unreliable and dying. I bought the Turtle Beach X41 Headset, and it is causing some problems
with my wireless connection. Due to a number of reasons, it is not
possible to directly hook up my 360 to my modem. So, if I bought a new
router that can operate on a 802.11a frequency, would that help or not?
My current router is a Linksys Wireless G, 2.4GHz, router. Microsoft
has said that an 802.11a frequency router could fix problems with other
wireless electronics. If it would help, which router should I buy? I've
read a few reviews for the Linksys WGA54AG 802.11a, and everyone says
it doesn't work good. Any suggestions on another brand i tink with these you can do some thing
What your experiencing is not uncommon. It happened to me several months ago. I had the same router and did everything you've done without any sucess. I then reinstalled the linksys software and that fixed everything.
Alright, start with the basic Gateway IP. http://192.168.0.1 That is what i use to access my router's (yeah, we run just a few more computers than normal people) Anyways, If that doesnt work, then the router has been changed beyond a normal spectrum of Ip configurations. Next step is to recontact Linksys and Let them know directly that the IP Address for accessing the router is not working. Meaning you have no Access to the router at all. Almost all routers use the same base access router ip setup. Its rare to find different unless you are like a few people, who find they need to run at least 2 or more routers on the same internet connection because of too many computers.

Log into the router and make sure that you have not limited the number of wireless connections allowed to access the internet. You also want to adjust your antivirus/firewall settings so that all devices in your house are 'trusted'.
you have to check if your wireless network adapter
works and if the setting are correct..
you can also try to create a new connection for this computer and be careful to set the correct network name and wep key..
