    i think I have the router connected correctly. It shows that it is connected to the internet. Now, how do I get my laptop connected to wireless internet?

Hello,i have a problem with my linksys Etherfast cable/DSL router The power light will not stop flashing no matter what i do

That's because a stable connection is not being determined by the router. Call up you're ISP and inform them about the issue. There is probably a lot of distortion on you're phone line ! Ask them for a fiber optic upgrade !
Hope that answers your question !
