Wireless router internet access issues

D-Link DIR 615 wireless router - connected to Cisco switch inside our network.  

I can connect to the wireless network (SSID) but cannot connect to the internet on a wireless connection.

If I connect on a wired connection to a LAN port on the DIR-615 I'm fine - connect to the internet without issue which implies my network configuration on the unit is correct.

What am I missing on the wireless side?

Are you running DHCP from the wireless side?

DHCP is disabled on the router - address assignments should be from our firewall.  And no I cannot ping the D-link when using the wireless connection

Not using Wan port

Switched IP address of router to be outside of firewall / dhcp range

Still getting exactly the same results - connect fine over wired; do not connect to internet over wireless

What does a wired computer show in command prompt:
ipconfig /all
?
What does a wireless computer show for the same?

No workable solution provided - not worth the time and effort to troubleshoot a $20 device - replacing it with more appropriate hardware
