My router has fallen and can't get up

Dear Internets: I have a dinosaur of a Dlink Wireless Router and lately it has stopped talking to my computer. I even plugged them together and my computer kept cycling through an attempt to connect and then reporting that the network connection did not exist.

This makes me sad.

I am paying for DSL but not using it right now since the router does not work and I'd rather not string ethernet around my office.

This also makes me sad.

I am thinking it is time for a new router. What do I need to know in order to purchase one? I have no idea.

Recommendations?

ETA: Andrh1a says she might have one she can send me! *bounce* I hope so.
