You will probably need to buy a wireless card for your desktop - most desktop computers do not have a wireless card when you buy them. If you do have a wireless card installed, try refreshing the connection, making your home connection a trusted/auto-connect connection and downloading a new version of the hardware driver for your wireless card. You will no have wireless internet on your desktop. please rate my solution
If the desktop is a Win XP computer, Uninstall the WUSB54GC, restart the computer and then once it boots up and ready, plug the wusb54gc, once it ask for the drivers insert the cd and let it find the drivers then install it.You will be using the Windows wireless configuration and see if that will work.
If you want to use the wireless portion of your router, you would need a wireless adapter installed on your desktop. If you are getting internet on your desktop then this means that your wired connection is fine to the router is fine. The WMP54G adapter will work with your router, however if you are not planning on connecting to the internet wirelessly through the router then there is no need to purchase the adapter. Hope that this helps you out.
Did you check whether the USG adapter can work in "G" mode, read the manual of the usb adapter and check whether it can operate in "G" mode since your router is a wirelss "G" model the devices which detectes signals should also work in :g" mode, And most of the inbuilt adaters are viable with a/b/g/N type routers, so please check the manual and let me know
You say "your Ethernet Port" (= LAN port) If unavailable try using any USB to rj45 adapter and you can use any USP port. Check this device:Linksys - USB200M - Compact USB 2.0 10/100 Network Adapter (20 $?) or similar
The LAN will really tell you that its disconnected since your computer downstairs is not connected with a cable to the router, the only problem here is the wireless PCI adapter is not installed properly, try to run again the setup CD for the adapter and make sure you restart the computer when the installation is complete...
from the pc that can access the internet
type this address in your browser
which should start the routers webinterface you can navigate thru the Wireless settings and copy them to the pc that you are trying to connect,
WEP - wireless encryption protocol - a method of scrambling transmitted data for security - both ends of the link have to have the same code key or they wont talk to each other
First plug your router directly into your computer via the ethernet cable that came with the router. You'll want to connect the cable to the port on the router that says "Internet" (it's ussally to the far left when looking at the back of the router) make sure the other end is plugged into your computer's Network Interface Card (NIC).
Plug your computer into the modem via the UBS connection.
Insert the setup cd that came with the router and follow the prompts.
Once configured then unplug the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the modem (which should have an ethernet (RJ-45) jack as well as a USB.
Now you can either hook up to the wireless connection using a wireless adapter OR you can plug your computer in with a ethernet cable to one of the outgoing ports on the back of the router.
