I see you are having issue with your smartphone pulling up internet from your Linksys Router.
What browser do you use on your smartphone and is there an Error message when you try to pull up the internet on your smartphone?
Have you tried checking the wireless settings on your Linksys router to check for any restrictions? and is there a password for you to connect to your wireless router? if there is try to remove the password/security and test to see if your smartphone will be able to pull up the internet with no issues.
Also in your Routers Wireless settings check if there is a setting that allows the router to be detected all the time also on your smartphone make sure that on the Wi-Fi setting the phone is set to be detected by other devices, cause if it is set hidden then it may cause issues on your connection from your smartphone to the Router.
What smartphone do you have so we can check both devices for setting concerns that may hinder in getting the proper internet connection from the Linksys Router.
I believe other devices can connect to the Linksys Router with no issue such as a laptop maybe, if possible maybe you can try another device that has WI-Fi and try to connect to your Linksys and check if there will be connection issues, also if possible you have a friend that has a smartphone of a different brand model and see if his or her smartphone will also have the same issues connecting, if so then the issue is not on your smartphone but most probably is on your Routers wireless settings.
Try resetting the Linksys Router back to factory defaults then try connecting and see if the issue will still be the same or if it will work from there.
Try: Clarify - the desktop is connected with an ether net cable? Is working? Install router software on desktop to manage router. Trying to connect desktop wirelessly? Wireless card installed? Radio activated? Network detected?
Make sure your router is being detected by computer after detection associate it, If network key requested enter the network key has been entered during installation. Also Check your computer's wireless device status if its on and enabled. If issue persist please post question with complete details like Model of your computer and router, especially symptoms that you are getting.
