Power off and power back on your Linksys router first. if that fails, try connecting to one of the Ethernet ports with a cable and see if the router is working in wired mode. Then download and install netstumbler software from http://www.netstumbler.com/ . This will tell you a lot of things, provided your wireless adaptors on the PC are ok.
If the router is still sending out a satisfactory wireless signal, this will show up in NetStumber, and you'll also be able to see whether there are any other (potentially conflicting) routers operating from Neighbors on the same channel as you. If you find a neighboring device on the same channel (ususally 1, 6 or 11), change the channel on your router to which ever one of these is free. Its also possible that the router config might have got itself corrupted; in which case a factory reset option could sort this out (you'd need to re-program the ISP settings, so make sure you have these first!).
Its unlikely that the MS upgrade has stopped the wireless working, but if all else fails and to eliminate all possibilities you could revert using "system restore" from the most recent recovery point.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
then you need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Check your computer's browser settings, make sure it's getting valid IP address, try pinging a website and check your IP settings under network connections.
Disable any third party firewall software you have installed.
Hope this helps!

Ok, connection speed depends on few things:
1) Spatial streams (or pipes and antennae) you have on each side of the link (e.g. in your device's wireless card and your router)
2) Selected Channel Width ( auto, 20 or 40 Mhz).
3) Channel your router is broadcasting on and the noise and interference of neighbouring networks in the selected channel.
In order to achieve the highest wireless speed possible :
1) It is better to at least match the number of spatial streams ( or simultaneous connections in your wireless adapter,
2) Activate a channel width of auto, (which will check and switch channel width according to the good neighbour policy) or manually force it to use 40 Mhz mode (often called afterburner) both in your router and your device wifi driver. Auto mode will check if 40 Mhz mode is supported, and, if does not interfere with neighbouring networks it will switch to it automatically. 40 Mhz mode uses two channels separated by a gap of 5 channels to pass data instead of only one, so there can be signal overlapping and interference.
3) And finally, if there is congestion on any given channel you use try to set up your router so it uses a less congested one. (recommended channels are 1, 6 and 11 because with these you can have the chance to use dual channel with the least overlapping and noise).
I'm attaching the next chart because it may be useful to you when trying to understand more about wireless channels and their implications as this clearly depicts them.
Hope this helps you.
