Tips for a great answer:
NOTE: It is
advisable to connect the computer to one of the Ethernet (1, 2, 3 or 4)
ports when setting up the router for the first time. If you have
successfully configured the router using a wireless computer, unplug the
Ethernet cable which connects the computer to the router for you to
have wireless Internet connection. For instructions on how to connect
the wireless computer to go online using the Linksys router, click here.
Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to an available power outlet.
Check if the corresponding LEDs on the router are lit. For instructions, click here.
