Can you get online with the Asus desktop that's connected to the router?
If you can get online using using the Asus desktop, then try connecting the Apple Notebook directly to the router using an Ethernet cable. If she gets online while wired connected to the router, then there's a problem with the wireless capability of the router.
If she can't get online in either way (wired or wireless), try to disable first the Airport of the Apple Notebook and reboot the computer.
After rebooting the computer, enable the Airport and try connecting to the router wirelessly. If it's connected, check the IP address of the Apple computer and see if it's getting a valid IP address:
The valid IP address starts with: 10.71.x.x or 192.168.x.x
Invalid IP address starts with: 169.254.x.x
Check also the IP address of the router. However, you need to contact the router manufacturer (Linksys) for assistance. Checking the settings could be a little bit confusing.
The router and the computer should be in the same IP range in order for them to communicate.
Have a great day!
