I am using a D-Link Di-524 wireless router and have been using a wireless connection ever since I got my iMac a few weeks ago. There have been no problems with the wireless connection but all of a sudden today, when I was surfing the net, I got disconnected from my wireless network. I use WPA by the way. I tried connecting back to the network but all it says was that I provided an incorrect password, which is totally untrue. I went to 192.168.0.1 and tried to reset the password, but it didn't work as when I tried to connect to the network again, it once again specified that I provided the wrong password. So I have no choice but to use a wired connection now. Anyone knows what went wrong?

Now it's even weirder. I set up a WPA system but now when I try to connect, it says "the network ____ requires a WEP password" then when I press OK, it says connection failed/timeout
