Re: vista internet connection through Linksys router only...
Go to Network and sharing center, then network connections, right click you your network connection and choose properties. Then choose Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) Does it say "obtain ip address automatically" ? Do the same for Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

I think you might be using the Linksys utility. you can switch over to windows utility if it is XP or VISTA. that will resolve the problem. make sure that it will be connected to the network and should have proper IP address Click Here for more info about wireless network set up
U have to configure the router.Then & then your internet will work.You can see the instruction set given with the linksys router or instruction set cd.Follow the steps,which will ask you ip,user name,password etc. information.Fill the right information save & reboot it must work.
Connect your PC with a cable to the router. See if you can access the router configuration with Internet Explorer (or firefox...). To do this, you have to know the IP address of the router: it is in the documentation and is by default. You can find the info on the website of Linksys. On mine, the router IP address is 192.168.0.1. I type the IP address in the address bar in Internet Explorer (http://192.168.0.1) and I reach the router login. It may look hard to do, but if you do it once, you will understand the process and be able to troubleshoot your connection in the future.
I think that your IP address is now used by another computer. Once you reach the router configuration, you will be able to reserve your IP address, so no more problem to get to Internet. See the manual for the router login and password.
Did you move the router out of range of the computer? It sounds like you put it back where it was but I just thought I'd ask.
Otherwise, use your wired connection to check the router settings. It is possible that the wireless settings defaulted due to the disconnection. You can either set the router to match your wireless computer if you can remember, or just set up a fresh wireless connection between the two.
If it says local or unidentified network that means you are just connected to the router on the network but not through the internet. Try to go to manage wireless network, remover your network there and add it again, connect to your own network and make sure to type the correct network key., then check again. You can also try connecting to other wireless network to further isolate the problem.
In this case you have to get your router reset to default settings and then set it up once again and also setting upa new wireless network with a different channel because the issue you're facing is because of channel selection.
