Had the same problem and spent hours trying to make it work. Ended up being something simple. In the properties for the local connection that is your wireless card, make sure you turn off the checkmark that says, "Let windows manage this connection". Then go through the Linksys setup again and it should work.

Good Luck,
David

Once you've turned off the "let windows configure this device". You should run the setup program that came with it. Make sure the network device assigned to the wireless card is the one we're working with. I checked mine on my laptop and it says "Wireless Connection 6", the local connection is an internal lan card. Make sutre to set this device as above plus set it to get the IP and DNS info automatically. During setup , let it find your router, connect to it, and put in any security key that you've set on the router. After that it pretty much does it on its own. If it still doesn't work, then you need to check the wireless setup on the router.

Thanks,
David
