Re: uable to receive a site
Go to a DOS prompt. Type Ping sony.com. If you get a reply, then your network is good and your internet explorer is either hijacked by a virus or misconfiguered. Go to Start, all programs, accessories, system tools and select Internet Expolorer with no add-ons. If this works and you get a Web page then one of your add-ons is defective. (Turn off Yahoo first). If this doesn't work get a friend to download you a copy of Dr Web and go fight viruses.

No this is not typical if the Network card and router are just one room away. However electrical interference and walls do impede the signal.
Try moving the Router around to see if the signal improves. You can also adjust the antenna and pointing it in the direction of the Router. 1. Position your wireless router (or wireless access point) in a central location. 2. Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects. (Such as Metal file cabinets) 3. Replace your router's antenna. Antennas supplied with your router are designed to be omni-directional, meaning they broadcast in all directions around the router. Upgrade to a hi-gain antenna that focuses the wireless signals only one direction. You can aim the signal in the direction you need most. 4. You can add wireless repeaters. (just the room next door this would be a last resort if all else fails) 5. Change your wireless channel. You may find one that will transmit a stronger signal. 6. Reduce wireless interference If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your home, your computer might not be able to "hear" your router over the noise from the other devices.. To quite the noise, avoid wireless electronics that use the 2.4 GHz frequency. Instead, look for cordless phones that use the 5.8 Ghz or 900 MHz frequencies. 7. Update your firmware or your network adapter driver Source: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx Nice diagrams on this web page too.

heres the drivers i found for my own 2 wire usb wifi thinggy, thay work very well on xp and win2k i think it works on vista but i dont own vistta. i dl this files a while ago and saved them on my HD so i dont remeber ware i got them, but i uploeaded them to rapidshare so others can find them as well. heres the link
Since it worked when you last used it, the first thing to try is to reboot everything. Shut down the computer, the cable modem (by pulling the plug on the back of it), and the router (by pulling the plug on the back of it). Wait 30 seconds, then plug in the modem; wait and other 30 seconds, then plug in the router, wait another 30 and turn on the computer. It shouldn't actually require a full 30 seconds between each step, but if you do that, you'll know that you definitely gave each device enough time. That should fix the problem. If it doesn't, post again indicating what happened.
y dont you try the other way round you become the host and update the setup to compatible with vista drivers then try and use the things!!!see if it works for you otherwise i will try and suggest another solution
