Hi,
I've been using a linksys router for the past 6 months and I didn't have any issues trying to get my linux (redhat 7.3 and 9.0) to work. DHCP worked fine and also in the DMZ setting. I also have Win XP, 95, and 98 machines connected. Can you ping your DNS addresses? Did you get the router new or used, if it was used set it back to default or double check that no one setup anything under the advanced tabs. As far as the tx and rx errors, I would give a quick check to make sure both ends are set for auto negotiate. If it's an older router check it's code level..
