I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop with Windows Vista and the wireless connection from the Linksys box in my home is not showing up in my list of connections. Many connections show up, but not mine. The desktop, which is connected to the Linksys box, has internet but I cannot seem to find the option to connect to this router on my laptop.
Any help is great!
Thank you.

That is sometimes caused by the channel number on the router being too high.
You will need to go into the router configuration page to change it, using a PC which is wired to it (not wireless).

When the channel number is changed, all the PC's which connect to it will automatically select that channel.

Your Linksys router not yet established wireless network still,Once you configure correctly you will be able to see the wireless network. Whenever you scan for the network. In order to change the channel number you need to enter the default ip 192.168.1.1, Which will allow you to access Linksys default page. Then scan for the network.
