Hello,
I have a linksys router (wi-fi certified). The installation disk indicates that it can be used on Windows XP and Windows 2000. Does this mean that I cannot use it on Windows VISTA
 
And what is the version #?

Looks like this..

The BEFW11S4 is a very old Model with 802.11b Wireless.
In it time it was bellow averge performer even when it was new.
I am not even sure that it is compatible with Win 7 (check with Linksys support).
Current high-end Wireless devices are rated at 600Mb/s as oppose to the 11Mb/sec of your current Router.
I think that you got to a point that with multiple users it is providing very limited badnwidth to each device.
It might be a good time to move on to a New Wireless Cable/DSL Router.
