What channel are u on? Guessing by the ESSID name, Linksys, it probably is channel 6. Try the channels at the beginning and end of the 2.4Ghz WiFi (unless your using N @ 5Ghz of course) spectrum, 1 or 11.

If the no worky, power-cycle the router. If problems persist try upgrading the firmware; you should do this anyway if there is an update. WiFi routers tend to be really buggy and full of glitches and are constantly updated.
