Some months back I purchased a Linksys WRT150N and took it home, set up a wireless network with three wired HD's and a wired printer, pluss on wireless, two laptops, two stationaries and a mediastation.
I was very pleased with this, untill a few days ago, the wireless network disappeared totally...
I am now unable to connect to the Linksys even with wired network, I have tried the ten-second factory default resetting, different network cables, nothing seems to work....

Where is the router located? There maybe devices that run the same frequency as the router that may interfere the wireless connection (e.g. microwave oven, cordless phone). It may help if you place the router in the middle of all your wireless computers, change the channel of your router (change it to channel 1 or 11), or securing your wireless network by changing your SSID (do not use default wireless network name as others maybe using the same) or use WPA or WPA2 to make sure that nobody uses your wireless network.
Make sure that your wireless mode is set to "mixed mode". Intermittent Connectivity: NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots). This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router. Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
Wireless interference within the network.
Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals: your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers. Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.
Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor and high up in the room.
Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router. To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here. To change the router’s channel, click here. To enable the wireless security on the router, click here. NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here

First thing that you have to do is to check if the wireless light on your linksys wrt150N is lit. If it is, then that means that it is emitting wireless signal so you can connect wirelessly.
Then, install your verizon usb mobile broadband card on your desktop. When you plug it to the usb port, a pop up balloon would show on your page which would say FOUND NEW HARDWARE. you could click on it and choose the CD-drive to install OR you can run the cd and have it install on itself.
After installing the usb, try to connect to your wireless network. Start > Connect to > and then click on the name of your wireless network.
If the setup CD is not working fine for you , It will be better for you to call the Linksys tech support and they can walk you through wtih the process on how to manually configure the router and set it up as a Home network, this is the Linksys phone number 800-3267114...
1st one is to make sure the ssid is not similar to other routers you are using on your profile. ie.(change it to a unique name)
2nd is to make sure you check the box that says broadcast your ssid.
3rd check to make sure you select the router as an access point and not adhoc or infrastructure option. Finally you can try to change the channels eg. i like channel 3 b/c it doesnt interfere with any phone lines.
