Unhappy Can't connect to my new wireless router.

I've just moved house and got a new internet connection. Formerly my Magic was connected to my wireless router and all was well. It still connects to wifi hotspots etc. but it just can't see the new one.
Two laptops and one netbook all work, as does my wife's iPhone.

I'm not sure where to start looking. I can get into the router and mess about with the wireless settings if necessary.

In particular, these look interesting. Currently set to the defaults:
802.11 Mixed (n/g/b) (other options are n or mixed g/b)
20/40MHz (Auto) (Other option is 20MHz)

The router is a D-Link DIR-615.

Any suggestions? Worst case is I have an older Netgear one but it's buried in a box somewhere.

What is your encryption setup?
Hopefully WPA2?
It should work with Auto Cipher - Personal

Unless you have very old B devices turn off B at the router. G/N or G only.

If you have a profile configured on the phone then Forget/Delete it and re-authenticate.

That's not an option. It's either g/b or n

Tried that. I'll try setting it to n only and see what happens. Although I'll wait till my wife's finished her skype call...

No difference. Time to dig out the old Netgear one and see if that's any better.

And it is. So the D-Link is either dodgy or incompatible. Strange.
