Hello, since few hours, I can't connect with my D-Link router 4300 to the modem. It's like my router doesn't recognize the internet connection of my modem because there is no available connection at all, for every single PC in my home ! When I connect a cable to my PC, it works. I can't see the problem because I can't even connect to http://192.168.0.1/. I tried many variations but nothing. It all started because I changed the WPA security to WPA2. Then it restarted my router and nothing worked after. Here is the ipconfig`

You can push the reset button in the rear of the router to reset it back to factory defaults and then start over.
Everything states media disconnected and that means no connection so a reset may help.

You tried holding the reset button and it's not working ? That's not good because there are only two ways to access the router and your saying both don't work so it might be that the router is broke and will no longer function.

Try disconnecting everything including the modem and just connect the computer to the router by ethernet cable and see if the 192.168.0.1 will work. That's about all I have to suggest , it's a very limited access to get into a router and work with it so not being able to use the address typed into the browsers address bar and get in is bad news.
One more note , and that is when typing in the address wipe the bar clean and just use the numbers , no http. If there is a s after (https://) the address won't work.

It looks like my router isn't working at all, sadly... Do you think I'll have to change it ?

Error 109 (net::ERR_ADDRESS_UNREACHABLE): Unable to reach the server.

If you cannot get into or use the router by wireless and by ethernet cable then yes you may have to get a new router.
Before you do make sure that your modem is working bt connecting it by ethernet cable directly to a computer and see if you get online. Make sure that you power cycle the modem when you disconnect from the router because it wioll still be looking for the routers Mac address untill you power it down and back on (power cycle).
