Is this a laptop? if it is, see if there are any switches or buttons on the case. Most laptops have hard switches or buttons to turn off the wireless adapter, but Windows will still show it as enabled when you try to connect. Try to look for a button with an antenna or satellite symbol on or beside it. Just press it once, and then try to connect again. Try pressing the "refresh wireless networks" button in the place where you would connect to wireless networks. Hope this solves your problem :)

I can't tell which router is mine

To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-

My computers stopped detecting the wireless network. The wireless router used to work fine with all my computers, but today it stopped. I am unable to connect online via wireless, but if i plug cables...

Power cycle all devices. that should do the trick. You may also want to get to the User Interface of the router to check if the router radio has been turned off by accident or the wireless detection has been stopped by accident.
