Not especially helpful but I thought I'd throw this out there, Linksys
routers by default define their DHCP range as 192.168.1.100 -
192.168.1.149, so pick an address outside that space if you're trying to
assign statically. You can often get away with setting the IP of the
router (default of 192.168.1.1 for Linksys) as your DNS, as many Linksys
routers have a built in DNS proxy.
Are you sure you're getting a strong enough signal from the AP? Have you
had success with this WiFi card accessing other APs? Do you have access
to a different WiFi card you could try?
