I think you may need to add a netmask to your route add command.  I know
it should know that from the 192.168 being a class C address but I have
found some other Unix systems had problems without specifying the
netmask.  

Just to confirm, you can ping 192.168.1.7 right?  

Also, with the Linksys wireless device, how did you connect it?  Did you
define the WAN port with 192.168.1.7?  If you connected your 192.168.1
network to the switch or LAN side of the wireless router I think the
wireless users are simply bridged over to that network.  In other words
the WAN port would be unused and all of your devices, server and
wireless users, would be on the 192.168.1 network.  

I have to look at the linksys to see if the wireless portion can be
configured for a different subnet or not.
