Have you tried connecting the 2nd computer wihtout any security first to make sure it works like that? Just have it set up for a minute or so to test. Once that's done, try using the more secure WEP or WPA settings. Make sure the MAC Filtering is not on for this as well as it will not let anything work unless the MAC exactly maches. There are lots of nitpicky settings on the security side of the wireless router. Try to follow the directions that came with the router. Also, if the laptop came with software for the wireless connection, try to use that and don't let Windows handle the wireless connection. I've had better results not letting Windows configure it.

From your description, you appeared to have to have set up the printer correctly to print over your internet.
Can you see the remote computer from the main computer and the remote computer from the main computer?
Are both computers in the same workgroup or network name?

You may want to check your installation against my instruction on setting up a shared printer.

Cant connect to internet with main computer, one upstairs is fine


The upstairs computer is wired or wireless ?

If the upstairs computer is working then the router must be working properly.
Check the connection between the downstairs computer and the router.
If it is a wireless computer then check the wireless connection status on that computer.

Cannot connect wirelessly


You need to setup cisco page, with your ISP. Your setup name and password must be same for all computers. All computers for this installation must connected by wire at the beginning. And make sure you enable the wireless options on Linksys page. READ HELP form Linksys main page.

Can't connect


First if your computer has an ethernet port attempt to connect through the router to the internet with a wire. If that works the next question is did you buy this device new or used? If used we can work to assure we know the configuration of the device. Second what is the manufacturer and model of your computer? Third, if the wireless adapter is not built into the computer what do you know about the make and model of the wireless adapter? Armed with the above information we should be able to resolve the issue.

Thanks
