You can try to reset your router
Reset the Linksys WRT150N wireless home router if you are experiencing connection issues or have forgotten your customized router login information. Resetting the Linksys WRT150N will erase your Internet connection settings, wireless security preferences and all other personal settings from the router. This procedure will restore the WRT150N back to its factory state.
Instructions
1 Locate the "Reset" button on the back panel of the router. The button is situated to the right of the Ethernet ports and to the left of the power port.
2 Press and hold the "Reset" button.
3 Release the "Reset" button after approximately five seconds. The device resets

Tips & Warnings
Use the Linksys WRT150N setup CD-ROM to run the setup wizard and reconfigure the router after the reset.

SOURCE: set up router/modem as instructed

Problem can't be solved as described, a fixer would need more details.

What kind of modem/router is it?
What instructions are you working from so far (you say, "as instructed" so I take it you're looking at a Quick Start Guide of some sort?)
How are you connected to it?
What http address are you going to (E.g. some routers use 192.168.1.1, others 192.168.1.254 or various alternatives)
What happens when you enter that address on a browser?
Have you set your computer's address to a nearby address so it can talk to the route?

If I had one guess with not enough information, I'd say you need to set your PC to an address one different from the target you're going to.

Wireless network access: 1 laptop fine, other not so much

Check the wireless card on the PC first. Go to "My Computer" then "Device Manager" and check to se if all the hardware is ok.

Use Control panel/netconnections to check to see if you still have a wireless connection and if it works. Also check "My Network Places." Try re-installing the drivers.

As a last resort....try System Restore if it's an XP or Vista system. Remember - using system restore will return the PC to an earlier time but you could lose some stuff so decide first.

Bad connection. dropped internet when connected with mac wired or wireless

I'm not sure but it could be that the particular router has some hardware issues. I bought a Belkin wireless N router a few months back and i had the same problem. It only had a short range and kept cutting off in between. I exchanged it with a new router and voila!. it works fine.
And the other thing i've come to notice. At times having the router under the desk or at a corner might not give off enough to provide a connection within the adjacent room so I've had to place the router in a open and unobstructed place. So much for belkins super signalling.

Can't connect wirelessly to Belkin Router

have you customized the wireless settings of you router (e.g. ssid, wireless channel, wireless security)? if not, try to change your router's ssid or the wireless channel. it could be that some wireless devices are interfering with your signal.

hope this'll help you.

Pc connection problems

Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
