    I bought one of these for a computer of mine. My uncle bought one, but I can't seem to get his to work.

    The linksys program home says it has connection to the router, but not to the internet.

    If anyone has experienced this problem, please let me know what you did to fix it.

    Thanks

    Check the wireless security on the router including - mainly encryption and mac address filtering. Also does this adapter work at other hotspots?

    who is your ISP? you may have to configure it through PPPoE, when I was using a Linksys 54g I had to do so.

    When you log into the router you should be able to view the status the the WAN connection. See if the router is connecting to the internet or not. If its not then you need to setup the PPPoE connection; username and password.
