If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Linksys wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.
There are 2 steps involved Reset your router, Setup/Secure a new router
Reset your router: First
Unplug your DSL/Cablemodem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now
On the rear of your Linksys router you will find a small RESET button
With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 30 seconds.
Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot
Unplug your Linksys router from power
Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
Plug your Linksys router back into power.
You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.
Setup/Secure a new router Log into your router
Type192.168.1.1 into your web browser and hit enter
In the login fields (case sensitive):
Once in the web interface for your router
Click Wireless tab - Basic Wireless Settings
Find the Wireless Network Name (SSID) field
change this to your new network name (this is the name you will see when you connect through your wireless device)
Your Linksys wireless router needs to be connected to a DSL or cable modem which needs to configured with the settings that your Internet Service Provider gave you. To test your Internet connection connect a LAN cable fron your conputer to the DSL/cable modem. If you cannot connect to the Internet using this methos, you need to contact your ISP and the can check the connection to your DSL/cable modem.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem. 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.

The issue was the wireless print server not properly connecting to my home network and thus being unable to see my modem/network. This was because my linksys wireless print server generates its wep key with a different algorithm than the Motorola surfboard SBG900, this also explains why when I was using my old linksys wireless g router, things worked without any issue (same wep key algorithm). Once I figured out how to manually configure the print servers wireless settings and manually enter the wep security settings I was able to connect to my network and the configuration found the print server and I was able to finish setup.
