I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. This was a Dell Inspiron B130 laptop with a Dell Wireless 1370 WLAN Mini-PCI card. I kept clicking on the windows wireless connection icon to search for any wireless routers in range and nothing ever showed. Well, I later noticed another icon in the systray and it had green bars for it's icon. When I clicked on it, it searched and found the routers in range, just like the windows icon would do. I had to select the router and put the WEP key in, even though I had already done this thru the Linksys. Then everything worked great and it keeps the connection even after restart.
