If you have a firewall in your router it will need to be configured to accept the incoming connection. Where are you trying to connect to? Is there anything on the other end like a firewall, PAT?

Need more info, you trying to connect to another comptuer in your house or somewhere else? If over the internet then follow what OzMentalCase suggested. Also you might want to give RealVNC a try, Its free and the viewer software can fit on a floppy disk.

Have you set the Port Forwarding to forward ports 5631 (TCP) and 5632 (UDP) in your Linksys Router to the ip address of the computer you have set up with the static ip address?

See for futher information on which ports to open (if the above does not work)to allow PCAnywhere to operate through your broadband router.
