Linksys router problem

I just installed a linksys router for the computers in my house. All the MS windows computers work but the linux computer that I use does not work.

(Linksys) routers don't care about operating systems so the only reason they would not pick up a linux box is because either the computer or the router (or both) has not properly been configured.

Which distro are you using? Putting that kind of information in your profile would be immensely helpful as different distros may do things differently.
