Sounds like you need to reinstall the router software.

It also may be that you just need to do this.
go into your Control Panel | Network Connections | choose your wireless connection. right click on it and go to properties. there should be a checkbox at the top that says "let windows manage my wireless connection. Check that box then let restart the computer and go back into your wireless connection and choose the proper network with your password.

A third alternative is that you may have lost your winsock files. Read this to fix the problem.

What service pack do you have? Service pack 2 makes it a whole lot easier to set up a wireless network, and if you are using an older computer, along with newer ones, the computer might not support the WPA network security.
