If you did not change the IP address of your router then you can configure one of your computer to use static IP address in the same subnet as the IP address of the router and connect to the router on one of the LAN port. Then you can open the web page of the configuration by using the IP address of the router (on the LAN side) such as 192.168.0.1 (according to the manual or specification you can find about that router on linksys web site). Then you can login and configure the settings. Sometimes they use Admin and blank password as default login in user credential. If you want to restore the factory default, then you just need to press in the reset button which is usually a tiny hole on the back of the router close to the power cord. You can stick a paper clip or something into it and hold it for like 30 seconds and everything will be restored.
Well a cable modem is always on and requires no username or password. So that's not a problem. The linksys router, unless you changed it, will have a web address of http://192.168.1.1. The default user/password is admin/admin. If you can't get into it with that, then there is a small reset button on the back of the router. You must hit the button with a pen for about 5 seconds, the try going back to the web address. You can then access and configure the router..... just make sure to power cycle the modem and router after configuration. Make sure the modem is ready (internet or ready light is on) before you turn the router back on.
Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed. More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

LinkSys Router Configuration
LinkSys routers now ship with a Setup Wizard which is intended to simplfy basic configuration tasks.
We do not recommend the LinkSys Setup Wizard for two reasons:
The Setup Wizard is not significantly easier that the regular configuration menus
If you use the Setup Wizard, you will end up learning two interfaces for your LikSys router instead of just one
Instead, we recommend simply starting your web browser and jumping into the configuration.
Once your web browser is open, go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password. Logging in to a LinkSys Router
The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".
Once you are past the login screen, you are able to access (and change) a plethora of configuration options for your router.
Don't be worried by the enormous number and variety of options, your LinkSys router ships with default settings that enable it to work right out of the box in most environments.
From here the configuration options that you choose are largely up to your own personal preference.
If this is a wireless router, we recommend that you consider setting an SSID to identify the router as your own and configuring WEP to encrypt your wireless traffic.

sounds to me like u r running the dell in the usb, and it has to be on for the ibm to work, or you have a dual ip addressing problem, which is a negative to the ibm when the dell is off.
My son has a IBM think pad as well, and when he uses the Ibm with his linksys wireless router he has the same problem, or did until I addressed the dual ip address issue, which I had to change the Ip address on our netgear, and left his as was and changed the one from My Dell inspiron 8600, I suggest you go to the linksys web site and follow the re install of new drivers for your router and if possible upgrade. they have available w wireless handing software program available to linksys customers as a trial you can download called NETMAGIC which also works quite well, and your able to monitor your network and it usually works well, I've used it until I upgraded to my netgear wireless G router. hope this info helps you out.
