Sounds to me like the network card or Linksys modem-router needs the drivers re-installing. Was a CD supplied with them?

Is your wireless network card in the computer and does windows see it? Check in control panel under system. In system look for hardware, then look for device manager. In device manager you will see all the devices for your computer that windows "sees", such as your CDRom, hardrive, and many others including your network adapter. Look under network adapters and see if your card is listed here.
EDIT: Also if your card is listed, then make sure it does not have a little yellow exclamation point on it, which would indicate it has a problem with windows not "seeing" it properly.
