I know what you mean....when I was trying out the encryption it did the same thing. So I just left it out...but the problem's still there. =(

You might want to download and install the latest firmware from www.support.dlink.com.
The next question is... Are you using internal wireless cards in your laptops, or DLink Super G wireless cards? If your router is set to do Super G and you don't have DLink Super G wireless cards it will probably not work very well, if at all. If that is the case I would recommend disabling the Super G mode:
Go to 192.168.0.1.
Go to Advanced.
Go to Performance.
Set Super G Mode to "Disabled"
Also make sure that 802.11G only Mode is set to "Disabled" so that 802.11B cards can connect.
Click Apply, then Continue.
Another thought... Sometimes routers just go bad. What you described before as far as the lights blinking out before you lost connection might indicate a problem with the router. Sometimes reinstalling the firmware or upgrading to the latest version will fix that. Keep in mind that you don't have to use the latest version but you can actually revert to older versions that you download from the support website. You might also look at ftp.dlink.com for more firmwares. Scratch that, looks like the same 1.25 and 1.28 as are at the support.dlink.com site. So try each of those. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep in mind that whenever you upload the firmware to your router it will wipe out any settings you may have had, so you will need to remember your WAN settings so that you can get connected to the internet again. If you have cable you probably won't have to change anything but if you have DSL (PPPoE) then you will have to input a username and password and possibly change the MTU to 1492 to get reconnected after upgrading firmware.
Hope those ideas help.
