First of all, you shouldn't encourage people to send you suggestions to your email address. Since this is a public forum, if someone posts here, it may help the next person who has the same problem and sees this thread.

Since this issue is common, I'll give you a few links to some threads where people have been experiencing problems similar to yours:

In short, you should make sure that you have the latest firmware updates installed on your router, latest Windows updated, try disabling wireless security for testing purposes and any firewall on Windows, and using msconfig, disable Zero wireless. This is all discussed in the threads above. If you still can't get it working, then you should call Linksys tech support.
