Hello Nickon and welcome to the forum!

I assume that the Linksys worked fine at some point.

Have you tried resetting the router?
Unplug the router and your modem
Use an ink pen to push in and hold the reset button on the back of the router.
This will set the router back to the factory defaults so if you had a password set you will need to reset it

plug in the modem & let it initialize
plug in the router & let it initialize.

I have had to do this on occasion with Linksys routers
In the beginning there was the command line.

How old is the router?? They do go bad (usually 3-5 years), might be time for a new one. Have you suffered any power surges?
