Vista does what it feels like
When one is stuck with an XP mentality
--Vista is a 21st century OS
Have you tried changing channels on the router? Check TCP/IP v4 properties if IP addressing is on Static or DHCP.
.. but to be fair, networking still has issues:http://www-in.linksys.com/servlet/Satel ... 1493882B44http://en.kioskea.net/s/vista-wireless-network-linksys

The Linksys router was on and functioning, but my new Vista laptop did not detect that the Linksys router was broadcasting. I went into the Linksys web site that we all have to go to to reset the router at http://192.168.1.1
and found the problem.
Sign in with your user name and password (if you have set one) and go to the tab named "wireless" and look at the term "SSID Broadcast". If it says "disable", check "enable" instead. Then click "Save Settings" and log out.
What this does is broadcast your signal within a certain limited area. On my old laptop I disabled this so others in my community would not see that I had a wireless signal being broadcast, and my old laptop with XP still picked up the signal. Unfortunately, this new one with Vista does not. Once I changed these settings my new laprop with Vista connected immediately.
finally, you can try this:
I don't know if you solved this problem yet. I had the exact same
problem and finally figured it out. I disabled all network adapters
through "Control Panel / Hardware and Sound" except for my linksys
wireless adapter. Finally I have just one active network connection,
the unidentified network disappeared, and I connected to the Internet.
You see, i am doing my OWN wireless network this week = wireless web cams
