Im trying to connect to a network that ive seen laptops connect too. So i brought a pc and have a linksys i have at home. It sees the wireless connection and will connect. It connects for 2 minutes and dissconnect. Do i need something besides a linksys to connect?

What is the network that you're trying to connect to? Normally, you'd be connecting to your own Wireless Router or to a public "hot spot". If it is a public "hot spot", you may need to subscribe to the service or pay for "connection time" and this may be why you are disconnecting after a couple of minutes.

"Linksys" produce a very wide range of networking hardware, so presumably what you have is one of their "Wireless Network Adapters", which you've installed in the PC?
