If you have XP or Vista & have installed the software that came with your Linsys router uninstall ALL of it from any computer it's on.
[The Linksys software causes a conflict with the Windows Wireless connection.]
Open Internet Explorer
Type in 192.168.1.1 & click the go button.
If you haven't already set a password for the router the default name should be administrator & the default password should be admin
If you haven't changed them in the router settings at least password
When it opens click on Wireless
Set the Wireless Network Mode to Mixed
If you haven't already set the Wireless Security click on it
The easy way,
