DLINK DIR-655 Wireless Problem!

I'm having real trouble with my DIR-655 router in terms of the wireless aspect of it. I have comcast with an ARRIS telephony modem. I set up the router with all the wired LAN ports filled and the wired aspect works just fine. However, I tried to set up the wireless, and although the router configuration says it's enabled, it doesn't seem to be broadcasting a wireless signal at all. None of my wireless components, including a mac laptop, a windows laptop, and a wii game console, can see my wireless network (it's set to visible and is enabled). The LED light for the Wireless LAN on the router isn't even lighting up. I've tried messing with the settings soo many times with no success. I've tried adding security (WEP and WPA), changing the wireless channel, moving the router, changing the type of transmission (wireless N, G, B), but it still won't transmit a wireless signal.
For those familiar with this type of router, when I go to the status page on my router configuration...under the WLAN part, it looks like this:
Wireless Radio : Enabled
WISH : Active
MAC Address :
Network Name (SSID) : WIRELESS
Channel : 6
Security Mode :
Wi-Fi Protected Setup :
As you can see, there is no MAC address being picked up for the wireless nor is the security mode. Now I will admit, that there were a couple times when it was working for a split second, but it didn't stay that way for long. I want to think it might just be a hardware malfunction, but the fact that it has worked a couple times for short periods of time makes me think otherwise. Anybody have any thoughts at all? Thanks in advance. This is driving me insane!
