something died on me

Hi, I have a Dlink wireless ADSL router and a dlink airplus G wireless connector with BT broadband basic. Everything was working fine yesterday morning. Left pc, came back to find that i could nto connect to the internet. Tried tweaking lots of settings (put back to original when didnt work).
I have managed to 'solve' this by reinstalling the original bt voyager 105 modem. Connected Ok. I then unplugged this and have gone back to my dlink set up. I can now connect to the internet and everything seems fine.

After all this, my question is what went wrong yesterday so that if it happens again i can put it right?

"Tried tweaking lots of settings" and I wonder if you tried the most basic - and usually most effective - tweak, that of powering down the router for about three minutes, and then restarting?

Around 90% of all failed connection problems are cured by rebooting routers. Try disconnecting the router from the ADSL phone line as well during this process.

FE, that sounds a lot easier than changing the modem! Inadvertantly thats probabley what i did as I unplugged it all to switch modems.
Thanksfor the suggestion
