The laptops that normally run from the Linksys network are not showing any network at all. The "Easy Link Advisor" says the network is working.

Check the router user setup screens (see router manual). Check that wireless is enabled and SSID is being broadcast.

There should be a wireless indicator LED on the case -- see if it's illuminated.

It could be hardware failure. One or two wireless routers use a mini-PCI module for the wireless section -- that can fall out of its socket, so shake the router and see if anything is loose inside.
