SOURCE: Wireless Router Reset
The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router’s password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

this sounds like security problems , other people have experienced problems with vista but most have been able to resolve them.
whilst connected to your router using an ethernet cable open a browser windows and type in the rounter address these
are usually one of 2 most likely yours is
and typing password as "admin" and no user name. Use your password if you have changed it earlier 2
Go to wireless tab. 3. Go to wireless security sub-tab 4. If security mode is wpa or wpa2 note down passphrase/shared key, if security mode is WEP note down wep key number 1. This will be your network key
also check other.
On the Vista laptop with the connection
Start --> Network
Click on Network and Sharing Center
if It shows a red X between my network and the Internet.
click on the Customize link (below and right of the red X)
Under location type if it was set to Public. change it
to Private. Hit Next
At that point my whole network might go down, and
reset the router. (turned off and turned on)
After that my red X under network and sharing center
was gone. And my internet connection problem was gone.
I forgot to mention that before you shoul have turned
off all software firewalls and virus scanners. prior.
if that does not work when you are logged into the router page 192.168.1.1 check to see if their is an option to update the router software/firmware ,if their is no option then you may have to manually downlaod the firmware from linksys and update that way .
Hope this helps if not ask for clarification on anything your unsure of.
