Winsock errors, dropped router connections

OK, I have been losing connection (sort of) while surfing. I think it's my router. I have a network with my desktop plugged directly into the router (which is plugged into a cable modem) and a laptop that is using wireless. The network says it is connected, but I am unable to load webpages due to some sort of winsock/DNS error. For awhile, I could unplug the modem and the router for about 30 seconds, plug them back in and everything would work. That solution recently stopped working. I plugged the desktop directly into the modem and it works fine, but now I can't use my laptop.

So, my hypothesis is:
1. I need to reinstall my router (Linksys WRT54G) software.
2. My router has gone bad.
3. I have something wrong (virus, trojan or missing DLL) on my desktop

Looks as if the router is faulty. Do you have all the correct LEDs operating?

Honestly, I don't know. I don't know that much about routers. It wasn't completely dark, but I don't know if the "right" LEDs were flashing.

The indicator lights are very useful for analyzing a problem. If you have the user manual of the router check what lights should be on. If you don't have it you can download it from here.
