did you  update the firmware with a DLink update OR with a modified firmware from 3rd party?  If so, and the mod was not stable, you may have rendered the router useless.

have you checked the config of the PCs and verified with the settings in the router?

for your router's version/revision letter
like mine is rev c here http://support.dlink.com/products/revision.asp


Do NOT upgrade firmware from a computer with a wireless connection. Use a computer that you can connect to the router using an ethernet cable. You may damage the router due to the increased packet loss with a wireless connection.
Do NOT upgrade firmware on any D-Link product over a wireless connection. Failure of the device may result. Use only hard-wired network connections.

I did everything the way it was supposed to be. Firmware from D-Link, with the correct revision. That didn't work. What did work was returning the router and getting a new one. Something was wrong with that firmware, teaches me to upgrade! Thanx all!
