Question about Computers & Internet
This is because your wireless router is a router, and your linksys is also a router. Both are attempting to do routing, and they're colliding with each other.
Go into your linksys router's settings, and set it's IP address to have the SAME subnet mask as your wireless router, (The third number in the ip address has to be the same)
e.g. if your wireless router is 192.168.0.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.0.2
if your wireless router is 192.168.2.1, make sure your linksys is 192.168.2.2
After that, turn OFF the dhcp server on your linksys router (do this in the linksys config page).
After that, plug the LAN port of your linksys to the LAN port of your wireless router.
Your linksys will now be acting like a "Switch" which is an extension of your network. Voila!
