    You should be able to hook up the ethernet through the linksys router. I also have a linksys and it works fine with my MBP, are you sure you have your airport on?

    Yes, although, if your Mac can't connect to a Linksys router, you'll most likely have issues with this method as well.

    What's the problem with the router/MBP?
