    Hi guys...God I hope you can help me.

    I just used Linksys' EasyLink online walkthrough to connect my BEFW11S4 wireless router. It had previously been working fine, but we moved downstairs and the internet stopped working through the router (even the hardwired PC the modem and router run through). I went to EasyLink, and everything appeared to go perfectly; I set up a secure wireless network with a password, and the internet even started working on my hardwired PC with the router connected. Gravy, right?

    Wrong. I went out to make sure my new laptop (running on Vista) could connect to the new network, and got a 'limited or no connectivity' message. I figured it might have been the way I set up the router, so I tried calling linksys' tech support. The *******s tried to charge me $40 for help, so I naturally told them to shove it. :D

    My next idea was to try to go back and reconfigure the router settings using the EasyLink program again, but it won't let me reconfigure: it just confirms the network I previously set up exists, AND, now it gives me a message saying my router is not 'wireless capable'. WTF?????

    I know it probably has something to do with my router settings, but I'm not that savvy when it comes to wireless network settings, and Linksys is holding any answers hostage for a price I can't afford right now. Please, please help me!!!!!!
