Here's the useless response from Aluratek customer support:
"Failed to lookup DNS, the password is case sensitive, if you are using upper lower case letters you have to key in the correct case otherwise you won't be able to connect your radio. Thanks."
However, Aluratek advised another AIRMM01 owner to obtain a newer modem. I bought a new Actiontec GT724WGR Wireless DSL Modem and that resolved the problem with my AIRMM01F.

This is an old question that didn't have a definitive answer, so I hope someone is able to make use of my resolution if they are googling this same problem.
I was having the same problem and spent hours trying to figure it out. Same as everyone else, it worked when wired, but when setup for wireless, "failed to lookup DNS" error. I updated to latest firmware and it did not help.
I created a ticket with Aluratek support and they got back to me pretty quickly. They said to use WEP with a 10 digit numeric password on the wireless router. I had been using 128-bit WEP with a 26 character password and when I tried it with 64-bit WEP and a very basic 10 digit password, it finally worked. However, when I went back and tried to change it to a stronger password, it stopped working again and had the same DNS error. Even if I changed back to my original 10 digit simple password, it wouldn't work. I was only able to get it to work if I disabled WEP altogether. Disabling security isn't an option for me, so I kept trying to find a way to get it to work. I wound up changing the SSID on my wireless router and assigning it the stronger password that I originally wanted to use and it worked. Somewhere on the radio the old SSID is caching some setting that was preventing it from working.
Now my only problem is with the range of the wireless - if I go anywhere outside of the room where the wireless router is, the radio can't find it. I've gone back to Aluratek support and will see if they have an answer for this one.
Anyways, hope this helps someone. Once it is working, this radio is a good product.

first need more info is this a secure router connection...does it require a password to login to. if no then i'd refer to this link make sure you meet tehe requirments.
if yes i would make sure you entered in the correct password on your new device and if you did try a reboot to clear any possible communication error sit may have gotten.
