Ok... I see two people here with what appears to be the same issue, however "Guest" seems to have a more specific problem. I want to clear that up first.
You are confusing your ETHERNET (Wired) connection with the Wireless connection. If it says that "a cable is unplugged" then it is refering to your ETHERNET connection. (Also known as "Local Area Connection" by default.) If you are not going to be connecting your laptop to the router by way of an ethernet cable, then you can actually disable that ethernet port by right-clicking it in the "Network Connections" window and selecting "Disable". (This is how it is done in Windows XP. Windows Vista is a little trickier for some reason.)
If you are showing a strong signal after that, it means that your Wireless adapter is still working correctly. Make a new attempt at connecting to the wireless router by finding the name of your router in the list of available wireless connections and clicking Connect.
If your router's SSID (name) does not show up in that list, then it may be secured as per the default settings. The newer models of the WRT54G router have a button on the front that you can press to temporarily disable wireless security so that you can log onto the router and make your settings. Look on the front of your router for the "CISCO" logo near the front-left. It is illuminated by an orange glow. This is to enable SES or "Secure Easy Setup".
Pressing this button will turn it white and it will probably blink, too. While this light is white, you should be able to find the router on the list. But it will be called something different. It should have random numbers and letters as the router's ID and should show a fairly strong signal.
This is a temporary connection. This gives you enough time to log on to the router and change it's settings before the open connection times out.
To make all of this as easy as possible, I would make sure to do two things:
1.) Use the RESET button on the router to set it back to factory defaults.
2.) Make sure you unplug your cable modem and plug it back in before reconnecting it to your router.
3.) Make sure that you leave all default settings for all network adapters in Windows.
4.) If you have connected your laptop to other wireless networks called "linksys" in the past, it may have the settings of those previous routers in the history that Windows keeps for all wireless connections. You can find that list and CLEAR IT by right-clicking the little icon in the lower-right corner of your Windows task bar and selecting "Open Available Wireless Networks" and finding the list on the left side of the next screen.
I can't advise on much beyond that until I know the results of this procedure. But it sounds like both of you are having the same issue. Here's a tip:
For now, ignore ANYTHING that says, "Local Area Connection". That has NOTHING to do with wireless. That is the WIRED connection. (Ethernet.)
I'll watch here.

[QUOTE]The exact error message should be:
"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you
on to the network [SSID]"
Google shows 37 hits with this exact phrase.
This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of
WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it

Connect to the Router,
Under the Security tab, select Services, then add, give it the name XBOX TCP/UDP, set start port as 3074 and end port as 3074, set type as TCP/UDP, click apply/ok. Do this again, giving it the name XBOX UDP, start port 88, end port 88, type UDP, then apply settings.
Now go to Firewall under the Configuration tab, under incoming click add, now select the service XBOX UDP/TCP from the drop down menu. select forward to specific IP address or similar and type in your Xbox's IP address e.g. 192.168.1.5, click log never, then apply ok. Do the same for XBOX UDP and your again click apply. That's it! you've successfully opened the necessary ports on your Router and told your Router that any incoming info on those ports should be sent to your Xbox.

To fix, you go into the properties page of your wireless connection, go
to "Wireless Networks" tab and then to Properties of the chosen
wireless network you are trying to connect to. Then go to
"authentification" tab and untick the box saying "Enable IEEE802.1x to
the availiable network" and that should solve your problem
