Question about D-Link RangeBooster G WBR-2310 Wireless Router (WBR2310)
It sounds like you have a problem with a conflicting Wireless signal in your area.
This is caused by another wireless network close by that is on the same channel (or within 5 channels higher or lower) than yours that is causing interference.
You can check this by performing the following:
1. check your wireless network at the moment and see if you can see what the channel number is that is being used at the moment, make a note of this.
2. switch your router off (making sure that any settings that you may have changed on the router have been saved first!).
3. browse for any wireless networks that are in the area, and make a note of the channel numbers that these wireless networks are on. You should find that there is another network on the same, or close to the same, channel number that your wireless network is on.
4. power on your wireless router.
5. whilst the router is coming back on, take a look at the networks that you have found and see if there is a channel that is available that is 5 different from everyone else (ie, if there is a network on channel 1, you will be looking to use channel 6, if there is one on 7 use channel 2, etc). If there is no completely clear channel you may need to try and just look at the strongest signals for a 'free' channel.
6. once your wireless router is back up, log on to the configuration page (may be best to use a wired connection if possible, to avoid disconnections mid-configuration)
7. find the wireless configuration page, and set the channel number to the one worked out in step 5
8. retry the wireless network and see if you get better performance and a more stable connection
Wireless networks are a bit picky when it comes to interference, and they ideally need 5 channels of separation, otherwise the carrier signals can interfere with each other. But with not being able to control your neighbours networks, it can be difficult to get a completely clear channel :)
The other thing to check for is if you have had a change around in the house, and perhaps bought a new appliance (such as baby monitor or cordless phones or a fish tank), as some items can throw out interference to conflict with wireless networks.
Hope that this information is of some assistance to you!

Testimonial: "Yes, I tried several things, but chaning the channel and clicking on EXTENDED RANGE in the wireless setttings really helped."
Is your router locked?
you may have an ip conflict because someone is stealing your signal....
Also have you tried just leaving it unplugged for a few hours, There is also a reset button on most routers on the back a small hole with a tiny button.
Holding it usually causes the router to factory restore itself...
