First I would like to welcome you to BleepingComputer.
OK let's start by resetting your LAN.

1) First do the following to each computer.
Select Start then Run. In the Run dialog box type in CMD, and press enter. When the command screen opens type in ipconfig /release and then close the command screen and turn your computer off.

2) Unplug both your router and your modem. Wait one minute and plug the modem back in.
After waiting an additional minute plug in your router.

3) Wait one more minute and turn all of your computers on.

While you are reading this please list what ...
Modem you have (Make and model).
Router you have (Make and model).
What type of internet service you have (Dialup, DSL, Cable, satellite,..).

I believe I have identified your problem. You modem has a built in router. It can support up to 64 computers via a hub or switch.
Look at the section titled Features. Refer to bullet point number 5.
What this means is you have one of several choices.
1. Buy a hub or switch.
2. Keep you current router, the Linksys, and bridge it which means you are going to disable the router feature and use it as a hub\switch.
3. Bridge the modem's router function. This is what I would do. Contact your ISP for instructions.
