Do you mean that you don't have any computers in your household that uses the same wireless connection? Have you tried with a computer to see if the wireless broadcast of the network is indeed not working? Of course that doesn't mean to say that the wireless radio in the router hasn't failed, but it's a way of diagnosing it.

It's protected via WEP, and displayed a lock icon when showing up next to my SSID and was in the three bar "strong" green section.
My cable modem has also been acting funky lately,

if you see the issue with PC directly connected to the modem then I would consult the ISP
also make sure to check router with PC wired to the LAN ports not wireless to eliminate the issue with wireless.
