Default No network ---- until

My problem is that I can't see my wireless network on my new notebook running Vista premium. On my previous notebook which was running XP pro I had no problems. I can see other networks in neighborhood with new notebook though. If I go to my main computer, that is wired to router, and open up the setup program for the router and change anything and then save it, I can then see and connect to network on the notebook but when I shut down notebook and restart I have to go through the whole process again to see network. Normally I just change the channel and that is all I have to do. It doesn't matter what channel I use as I just go through the list. I think it is just that when I save settings, the router restarts and that lets me see network after about 1 minute. I am running XPpro on the main computer. When I first got new notebook, I couldn't see network, no matter what I did. Finally, I disabled the DHCP in the router and set up static addresses on main computer and notebook and could see and connect to network until I shut down notebook. These are some of the settings on router. WPA personal TKIP PSK ( also tried WEP ), Auto Channel Scan unchecked.
802.11g Only Mode unchecked. Enable Hidden Wireless unchecked, tx rate- auto, Beacon interval - 50 ( changed from 100 ), rts threshold - 2307 ( changed from 2346 ), Fragmentation - 2306 ( changed from 2346 ), dtim interval - 1, short preamble, cts mode - auto, wmm function - disabled. The changes I made were recomendations I found on net and none of them helped. My router is a D-Link WBR-1310 with latest firmware. I have searched for a solution for three days unsuccessfully. I would appreciate any help offered. Thanks Lynn
