The first thing you could try is to ping the router from one of your PC's (often the router's IP address is 192.168.1.1 by default, you may need to check your router documentation)
click start -> run and type in the box cmd then at the command prompt type ping 192.168.1.1 (or whatever the router ip address is).

If you can ping the router (it returns "Reply from..." messages), try pinging something like www.google.com

If you cannot ping the router ("Request timed out" messages), and if you are working wireless, try connecting the PC to the router with an ethernet cable. Try pinging again.

Also feel free to post the make/model of you router and PCs as well as the PC OSs, and whether you are trying to connect wireless or wired. Please include whether or not you are using DHCP.

Ok; and how were the LAN (internal, 192.168.1.1) and WAN (www.google.com) ping results?

Sorry, I'm confused by your wording in that last response.
You are saying that you can successfully ping an external website, correct? If you can, then exactly where is the problem, again? You cant connect with a browser?

If I'm way off mark, perhaps you can get into a bit more detail.

Sorry, this

linksys router not wireless version 2


is incomprehensible. Is there an installation manual? Does it have a model number? What did YOU do to try to make it work?

In Windows, did you set up the Network connection?
