I have an IBM thinkpad with winxp sp2.. it detects other routers except mine! (the
brand is called levelone wbr3600.. it's up to date) although i can surf
wirelessly through my ps3.
I checked every encrytion type from the router.. I even disabled it. Still couldn't see my wireless connection. Anyway as i mentioned before i can connect my ps3 through wireless connection "almost" smoothly.
ahh...Everything was just fine until i tried to update my old router and trashed it while i was trying to update it wirelessly. Anyway thats a little off topic. i just wanted to add this detail too..

Insert the Utility CD that came with the Level1 WUA-0603 wireless adapter into your desktop or laptop and follow the on-screen instructions. Be aware that you must have a wireless modem/router for your home network for this to work.
Have you set the security settings and everything else correctly?
if your not sure, you can reset the router to default settings by holding down the reset button for 30seconds. after that you should be able to connect easyly, you will just need to configure the security settings on the router pages again.
I would guess that all the other wireless routers are broadcasting using the G wireless standard 802.11g and your router is only broadcasting using the newer N 802.11n standard. Your laptop only supports B/G. Check your settings on your router and either change it to G or dual G/N mode so your older laptop can find the network
You mentioned that you have Windows XP SP1... You need to install at least SP2 or even SP3 for this adapter to work. If this computer doesn't have internet access at all, then you can usually get SP2 or SP3 on a disc for free from Microsoft.
To connect your ThinkPad to your wireless router, the wireless card in the ThinkPad needs to be configures with the router's wireless settings, ie. the SSID and encryption key etc.

Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
