Are the PC's getting addresses from the router? Go to start /run /open= cmd . Type in ipconfig. You should have an IP for one of the devices. Linksys is usually for the IP and for the default gateway. If your not seeing an IP and gateway you are not connecting to the router. With a blank DNS Suffix I suspect your not connecting.
