When my router was initially set up everything was working fine. Then, at some point, I couldn't send a signal to the printer anymore and that's the way it's been for quite a while now since I just didn't know what to do about it.

The router doesn't send signals to a printer. The Linksys transmits a radio signal recieved by the wireless adapters on other devices, if your printer has wireless compatibility it must be setup on the printer, in the wireless settings. I don't think it's a Linksys issue. It a computer software issue. If you post the Computer Make, Model, and your OS, the Printer Make, mode,l I will try to help you. Is this the first time using the Printer?
The cable internet is not "seeing" the computer. The router is blocking it. That is why it works if you plug it into the modem directly. How to solve this is to turn everything off and unplug power to modems and routers for 3-5 minutes. Then replug in routers. Then restart computers.
That is why it worked at the computer store. Everything was shut down and restarted.
Also, sometimes it is necessary to call the ISP (for example Comcast) and have them re-send the signal. Also going to Control Panel Network Connections and choose "repair the connection" will reset the signal. Be patient it will work.
Does the wireless light still lit on the router? You can try changing the channel on the router (1 6 or 11) ans moving the antenna. If those things did not work upgrade the firmware of the router and reset to factory default. Do not forget to save the configuration file before you reset to factory default.
This seems to me at first look to be a problem with your ISP not accepting the credentials for your connection. I presume you tried restarting everything after resetting the router, but resetting it has erased your ISP login and password.
reset yoru modem and wireless then after that go to windows explorer and type in the default ip which is 192.168.0.1 then it should be able to connect to your router an you setup everything from there, it worked for me.
In this order: 1) Turn off all PCs and printers connected to the router. 2) Unplug your router's power cord. 3) Unplug your modem's power cord. 4) Wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 5) Connect the modem's power cord and wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 6) Connect the router's power cord wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 7) Turn on each PC separately and wait until it is completely finished booting before turning on the next PC.
If you still do not have connectivity, read the manual and change the channel of the modem. YOu may be experiencing some RF interference, ie microwave, wireless phone system etc...
Try first to reset it to the factoty settings by pressing the brown button on the back of the unit, next to the Internet connection. You will have to reprogram the router with your PPPoE settings, if any, and your wireless security.
It may be just a problem of the signal bouncing around and your laptop is struggling at times to find the signal.
Some earlier laptops don't have a wireless booster built in the screen.
Go to your laptops' web site and see if there are any updated drivers for your wireless card.
If still unhappy with results purchase a USB wireless dongle and dissable wireless card, it may have a better reception area, or purchase a signal booster that works in conjunction with your wireless router.
