Win XP Pro, new Dell, built-in wireless, D-Link wireless router.

Have been on this wireless setup for a month. Recently upgrade the firmware for D-Link router. Now I'm having weird problems. Sometimes the wireless works fine, then it will drop out. Tried Repair several times to no avail. Gave up, moved near the router and plugged the ethernet cable in. As soon as I did that the wireless signal came back!! This has happened several times. Can't figure it out. Any suggestions??

Check the D-Link site for another firmware upgrade, if they've identified a bug they may have patched it.
If not notify them of the problem.
Do a search to see if anyone else has reported the same problem.

Can you revert to the previous firmware to verify that is the cause?
