I doubt it is the router, but your local configuration (wireless card, config, etc.). What do you have on THAT end?

If you can connect to other routers, then the wireless device is probably installed and you need to setup how it operates.

There is a manpage 'man wireless' for wireless-tools. These tools can help you monitor and setup your wireless connections. You will also need to match the settings by using the web-based interface for the linksys router.

Here is a webpage which goes through basic setup for Fedora Core and Linksys.
