Linksys DHCP doesn't assign to wireless clients

I have a Linksys Router setup with WPA2 Encryption.  If I plug computers into the ethernet the router assigns IP addresses and the computers can access the network just fine,  However if I connect with wireless the computer just try's over and over to get an IP address.  Whats strange is it doesn't time out and give itself an Automatic Private IP Address. (i.e. 169.254.0.0)  Also if i manually assign an address within the correct network, I do not have internet access, nor can I ping the gateway address.  Any Ideas?
