What about other settings - do you have any MAC filters setup? 
How many devices do you have on the network - is your pool large enough?
Does you router show connection attempts / requests?

Wireless adds a few other items -
do you use different channels?  SSID correct?  WPA enabled?
do you have the auth setup correctly?
is wireless enabled?

Have you looked over your config settings
does wireless work for other devices?
