This sounds like a hardware issue. Try the following troubleshooting steps:

Step 1. Recycle the power on your wireless router (ie: unplug it, count to ten slowly, then plug it back in) and see if that doesn't fix the issue.

Step 2. If that doesn't work, check for a newer version of the firmware. If there's a newer one, apply it.

Step 3. If it doesn't fix the issue, the next thing to do is reset the router to factory defaults and then reconfigure it.

Step 4. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the router.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Get a single cable and run it from a laptop/desktop to the router as see if it works.

Hang up and live.
