It sounds like what you may need to do is go into the routers setup page and add the Mac Address of the other machine your trying to connect. We can only hope it has such a setup page which can be accessed locally via the browser.
The command netstat -r may help, plug in the router to your local ethernet and see what the output of netstat -r is, for example on my network it says:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
default 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0
So I know my gateway to my web-page for accessing my routers settings can be accessed by visiting http://192.168.1.1
Hope that helps.

I've had similar problems with Ubuntu and the network manager, it's kind of poke on Linux for doing fiddly stuff like this, it's kind of hard to know if the stock kernel carries all the drivers it would need to talk to the D-Link flawlessly or if its some other setting in the network manager like enable IPv6. I know that's not really helpful, but yeap thats Linux in a nutshell, great when it works, crap when it doesn't.
I could reminisce and tell you about the hours of fights I used to have with Ubuntu just to get it to recognize Legacy device drivers for a G-Force FX5500 Graphics card. So much so that after that failed, I tried a variety of other cards and ended up going with the smallest 128MB Radeon because the whole desktop just works with a lot of ATI stuff out of the box and I sadly don't have anything bigger or meaner so no 3D game's for me.
If your trying to associate the router with the laptop it could be your kernel does not support your wireless device correctly have you checked what firmware is installed by default and what the wireless in the laptop with Ubuntu actually is you can find it out with the lspci command in the terminal.
I recently actually went to the extra expense of opening a ZyXEL Router just so I could snaffle the Prism GT miniPCI bus out of it. Thing is those are legacy wireless cards that work with Linux and turn your whole computer into an access point or even a radius server, but buying a Prism 54 off the shelf in a store.. Nuh-uh forget it, ain't gonna happen those things are depreciated so much and so rare nowadays.
People have no idea how rare those kind of legacy devices are getting, if you want a wireless with both a SoftMAC & FullMAC address those are becoming increasingly hard to find. There the ones everyone wants, especially if you want to do wireless sniffing or interception but the newer off the shelf cards are not really designed with that kind of stuff in mind.
Who wants two Mac Addresses "Ooh the Hackers!" LOL
