Must be something simple I'm not doing because my old D-link router works perfectly fine. Windows XP, LAN cable connection. I am able to actually connect to the wireless network with the linksys, configure the router no problem; the computer is clearly seeing the packets come in but I can't connect. I tried powering down, recycling the modem, all that and still no connection. I even thought the router was bad after talking to 'geek squad' over at Best Buy so I got another router, same exact model and it's doing the same thing. All the router lights are on. I see no evidence of any problems and as I said, there is no problem using my old router. I was just trying to upgrade to the linksys. No idea.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Who is your ISP...?
Are you able to go online from the hardwired computer...?
Readjust the wireless settings of the router and check...Open an Internet Explorer browser page on your wired computer(desktop).In the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press Enter...Leave Username blank & in Password use admin in lower case...
Click on the Wireless tab..Wireless Network mode should be mixed...Provide a unique name in the Wireless Network Name (SSID) box.Set the Wireless channel to 11-2.462GHz...Wireless SSID broadcast should be Enabled and then click on Save Settings.. Also check the security key under Wireless Security tab.

Solution was this: while I was able to access the internet using my old D-link router, I discovered that I could NOT connect to internet with the ethernet cable DIRECTLY to the modem without the router. AHA! Problem was in fact on ISP end. They had to reset the modem. Once they did this I was able to manually configure the new linksys using the mac cloning process which is nicely detailed in this article http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/ph
