Try "Disconnecting" from the wireless network, then scan again for "Available Wireless Networks", find and highlight the one that matches your router's SSID (network name) and select the option to "Connect" to it. Once "Connected", the wireless adapter should get its IP address by DHCP from the router and you should have network and internet access.

Check that the wireless PC has got an IP address in the 192.168.1.x range from the Linksys router.
