Go to the 192.168.0.1 configuration page you mentioned in your first post.
either in DHCP settings or General Setting (or something like that) you will
probably be able to specify what pool if assigns IP addresses from. If you
find anything about the "lease time" for each IP address you might want to
set it to "forever". I am going off of the way my routers menus are so yours
will probably be a bit different. If you don't have any luck here you might
try specifying the IP address that works in the IPv4 properties we have
talked about instead of using the "automatically get IP address". As I said
earlier, my understanding of specifying IP addresses is that it works only
for local purposes. But you might want to give it a shot at putting in
192.168.0.68 to be the IP address. go to the IPv4 properties, select "Use
the following IP address:" and for IP address put 192.168.0.68 then press
tab to go to the Subnet mask which should automatically fill in to
255.255.255.0, then default gateway should be 192.168.0.1 If this still does
not give you internet, then disable DHCP on your wireless gateway and see if
any thing changes. I hope this didn't sound too much like rambling
