Log into the router using a wired connection and make sure it is all set to automatic. There should be a setting like "obtain IP address from ISP." Make sure the DNS servers are auto too. Then, be sure DHCP is turned on and your PC is set to "Obtain IP address automatically"

I have some questions and troubleshooting steps.

1) Did you buy this item new? Was it sealed?
2) Have you tried resetting the router to factory default? (holding the reset button)
3) Are you using cable or DSL?
4) Have you tried unplugging the power to the cable/DSL modem for at least 30 seconds, and plugging it back in?

I don't like Linksys stuff anyway. Get a D-Link.

Well, they are and they aren't. They definitely like to use the name... You don't get "cisco" support when you are having a problem getting their rediculous version of a remote access VPN working. Cisco bought them to try and make more money. I do think that some of their hardware is getting better though (like their workgroup switches).
