cmac24 is on a distinguished road

My wife got a new laptop - macbook and I can't get it to connect to the internet. Her old laptop - a dell connects just fine, so the router is working. We use a d-link DI-624 router. I know next to nothing about macs so I don't know where to begin configuring it to connect. The macbook did locate our network account and I was able to go through the motions of accessing the account but it didn't work. Can anyone set me in the right direction? I tried the network diagnostics and went through all the steps of restarting the modem and router and that didn't work. I tried connecting directly to the modem and that worked fine.

i live in a house with 3 Windows machines and 2 Mac machines. and my router drops all the time. if you just turn your router off then on again then try reconnecting, may seem silly but works for me
