The signal is strong but there's no connection to internet
Used on 2 computers, had a connection set up just fine, one day the main computer lost connection to the internet, so the router was connected directly to the modem- solving that issue, but now the other computer picking it up on wireless has no internet, but it has a very strong signal. We had no problems before, and the little "i" icon turns orange when not connected directly to the modem

Re: the signal is strong but there's no connection to...
I have this problem sometimes. If you lose connection to the modem, you can't connect back to it, you have to reset the modem. Goto the modem, unplug it, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. Goto your connections, select yours, disconnect and then reconnect, wait a few seconds and it should connect. Hope this helps, let me know if it does or doesn't.

Hi, the gateway is your cable modem, so if that 3rd laptop can't find the gateway, it can't make its way out onto the Internet. Do you know if you're using DHCP (to automatically assign IP addresses to your computers)? If you're not sure, you probably are, and all you'd need to do to fix the problem is to open a command prompt on that laptop with the problem (in Windows XP, go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt; in Windows Vista or 7 you can just type "command prompt" into the search bar) and at the command line, type "ipconfig /release" and then, once the command completes (which might take a minute) type "ipconfig /renew". This will force your laptop to re-acquire its IP address, complete with subnet mask and default gateway address.
An alternate way to do it is to right click on your wireless icon in the system notification area of the taskbar and select Repair. It will accomplish the same thing as above, but Windows will do the legwork for you.
Hopefully that should fix your problem. If not, leave a comment and we'll go from there. Good luck!
Can you connect to the internet via an ethernet cable to the router, or even to the modem???
Are the computers set to automatically detect settings in internet options.

You need to setup cisco page, with your ISP. Your setup name and password must be same for all computers. All computers for this installation must connected by wire at the beginning. And make sure you enable the wireless options on Linksys page. READ HELP form Linksys main page.
uninstall the drivers for the wireless card then run windows live update the wireless card should be found and the drivers should d-load and then install themselves if that doesn't work try resetting your router or modem for the internet... sometimes certain computers in a house will receive a signal, and you might get the signal as well but the computers are messing around with the wireless... this happens more with belkin routers just restart the router and just run that one computer on the wireless network and it should start working. then you can allow all the other computers back onto the network
1. Make sure that wireless settings are properly synchronized. >> ssid/security key. 2. Check your computers wireless connection status > Make sure that it is set to "obtain ip address automatically) 3. If still not working if computer is set to obtain ip automatically, try assigning static ip on wireless pc > You need to know your router's ip address and dns 4. Disable firewall on wireless pc.
