Why isn't my wireless router working?

My wireless router is not working, even though it keeps telling me that it has an excellent connection to my network...So, what did I do wrong?

We recently moved and had Rogers hi-speed cable internet set up. All is well with the modem and I can access the internet if my laptop is plugged directly into the modem. The problem is that we have two laptops and my roommate and I each need wireless internet in our rooms.
I have a D-Link DI-524 wireless router (version A-1). When I plug the modem into the router and enable my wireless connection, the wireless connection appears to be strong, but none of the websites ever complete loading. What's going on? Am I missing something? I followed all the instructions in the book, and after that I'm pretty much lost.
I currently have WPA password protection on my connection, but I don't think that would make a difference...?
I'm planning on calling D-Link tech support tonight, but any input here that would prevent me from being on hold for an hour would be appreciated.
