    At least for me :)

    Linksys.com FAQ, ID 696:

    This behavior usually happens when your connection is configured to use 802.1x Authentication, but your current hardware does not support the feature. To disable the option, follow these steps:

    Accessing the Network Connections:
    1. Click on the Start menu.
    2. Select the Run option.

    · In the Open field, type ncpa.cpl and press [Enter] or click the OK button.

    3. The Network Connections screen will appear.

    · Right click the Wireless Network Connection.

    · Select Properties.

    Select the Authentication tab.*

    *If there isn't an "Authentication" tab, then please see Mircrosoft's Knowledge Article, 828940 for additional help.
    The Authentication screen will open:

    REMOVE the check mark in “Enable network access control using IEEE 802.1x†option.
    Click OK to close the window and close all other open windows. Try to then re-connect to your wireless network -- you should now be able to establish a connection.

    After doing this restart the computer.

    If restarting the computer doesn't help, then please see Microsoft Knowledge Article 828940
