Unable to Connect to DIR-615 on Restart

DIR-615
Hardware Version: C1
Firmware Version: 3.01

I have a Dlink DIR-615 wireless router and time warner cable. It seems that sometimes when I boot up my laptop(Vista), that it is unable to connect to my router. My roommate has a Mac Laptop and he has the same problem sometimes. I know that it's not just a network issue, because if my laptop can't connect, the other two computers are fine. (I have a desktop (XP) w/ a wireless adapter, but I have it on a static IP address and it always works fine.)

It says "connected with limited access" and the network icon in the taskbar has an exclamation point in it. I can resolve the issues by unplugging the router and plugging it back in, but it's really annoying to keep on doing this every time I have an issue.

I'm definitely no expert, but I have a feeling that the router has trouble automatically assigning an ip address unless the router boots up. But when a computer boots up, it has trouble getting a new IP address. (Maybe a conflict?) Also, I assigned my desktop a static IP address and is not having this problem.

Any thoughts?

Oh, and in case it makes a difference, I have WPA-Personal security on the wireless signal.

Post your setting here, you can block your DNS Servers but, some settings don't sound right. You should be able to connect.

Use WPA2/AES, Auto 20/40Hz, 802.11g/802.11n if you don't have G then use 802.11n only. Make sure SSID has a name. You'll also need to create password to logon your wireless network.

SSID: MyNET (just example)
Encryption: WPA2-Personel
Type: AES
Channel - Auto
Mode: 802.11n Only
Channel Width: Auto/20/40Hz
Passcode: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 (just example)

Make sure you and your buddy/roomy arent sharing or trying to use same IP.

Change these settings for starters.

Wireless Channel: - CH 1. 6. or 10.
Channel Width: 20/40 MHz
Cipher Type: AES

Thanks, I'll give it a shot.

Yeah, I was thinking that both computers we're feuding for the same IP... but they're both set to automatic. Why would it try and assign the same one?
