I am assuming the linksys usb stick is your wireless card? Try uninstalling it from the Network devices in Device Manager(Right click on My Computer and click Properties, then the hardware tab and Device Manager button) and uninstall the software from Add/Remove programs then reboot and install it again. Following the instructions, which is normally put a CD in and it will tell you when to plug it in. Sounds like the software had a brain fart.
Hope this helps
