In reading what the OP wrote...he indicated that he was able to access
the configuration menus of both the D-Link and the Linksys from the
netbook, so a cable problem can be discounted....and he even said
exactly that.  :-) :-)

FWIW, most modern equipment are able to detect what type of
cable/connection has been made and will "auto configure" making
crossover cables unnecessary.
