well if you are having problems with an encrypted connection..then why dont you make it much easier on youself and just only allow the four MAC addresses that are going to be using it, that way no one can get in but you, and it will never question your connection.

OR just password protect the AP.

this might be more difficult on a dlink..i always use LinkSys...i have my network configured perfectly on only allowing the MAC address of my laptop.
