May I suggest a quick and easy fix, maybe not so cost effecient UNLESS you can return the linksys router. If you are using DSL, then I recommend a D-Link router for your access point. Linksys routers are commonly not compatable with DSL modems. If you get the D-link, you should have no problems with plug and play.

Network "cant find the server."


Where did you see that error message? Other web site working?
Did you set DNS server to your router or your ISP's server IP address? I suggest you to use the internal IP address of your router as the default gateway and the DNS server setting on your computer if necessary. On your router, you can set to use ISP's DNS server if necessary. Usually you don't need to set anything on your router, it will detect it for you automatically. For some web sites, you may need to open some more port and have your ISP check all the settings on their site to make sure everything is working if you added the router recently.

hello!

-- who is your internet service provider
-- what is the operating system of your computer?
-- are you using a wired or wireless computer in configuring the router?

you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router


Step 1: Shutdown the computer.
Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable.
Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable.
Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable.
Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings
Step 7: test the Internet connection.

note:

configuring the router settings will depends who is your provider. if your isp is dsl you need to configure your ISP username and password on the router. if your router is a cable no need to change any settings on the router. it should automatically work

Here's the Linksys step-by-step guide for your router:

http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=3686&lid=5531661879B01

Are you connected to the wireless router with an ethernet cable? Generally, you want to hook it up this way first so you can configure it. If you are hooked up with a cable open your web browser and type in the following address: 192.168.1.1 this should get you to the router's web page. The default login for linksys is username: blank, password: admin

See if you can connect to the router in this way. If you can then we can go through the next steps or you can try using the above link.

Good luck.
