Ive been using this adapter for probably a year (probably less than that). at first, it works good. after a while, the adapter started to have no connection, it says its connected and all that but i had no internet connection at all. so i would right click and choose repair, and it would get a new ip from my route and then after maybe 5 minutes, no connection again.

If the laptop is 3 years old then it probably requires a chipset update. Goto intel's website and use the driver update utility. If this does not work then your wireless connection may be broken. You can buy a wifi USB card for less than £10 if you shop around. Good luck
Probably need to install the software that came with the Belkin card first. Make sure the card is NOT plugged in when you install from the CD. After that, restart your computer and make sure the card is now plugged in. Also, you need to set the router and belkin card with the same settings.
It sounds like the wire from your house to the isp switch is faulty you should probably call them down to fix. Or it could just be the modem are you using the same modem for both computers? If so then that's probably the problem.
1. Try to use a different wireless adapter on all available USB ports, if the problem remains then
2. turn off your PC unplug the power cord from the power socket, short the two legs of the power cable then leave it for 5min, then plug it into the power socket again and turn on the PC.
if this didnt work then you have a hardware problem with the USB ports.
When you say home bases, i assume you mean desktop pc's.
If the channel you mention is the channel that the router works off eg channel 11 then all wireless adapters have to be set to channel 11, or the same channel as the router.
The reason for one disconnecting from the internet will probably be the adapter losing the signal because of obstacles like walls and doors, as if the signal gets too low then the reciever cannot connect properly with the router, hence dropping the connection.
Try the router in a different higher position or at a phone socket nearer the troubled pc.
The connection accross the network should be atleast good and at 54 MBPS, anything less may not connect properly.
The laptops will tend to have a stronger connection as most have a signal up booster built in the screen.
Try using a different channel as there may be interference from other appliances.
You are probably on channel 11 in the routers settings, so experiment with a channel from 1 to 10, but don't forget to change the channel of your wireless card also.
