Question about Gateway (802.11usb) Wireless Adapter
I have a wireless network in my home that i use with my laptops. I purchased a belkin wirless G usb for my gateway pc. I downloaded the software and it is picking up the signal at excellent strength. However I cannot get onto the internet. It cannot find the page.
I had a similar problem and solved it this way:
Go to Start > All Programs > (the name of your USB adapter). In that folder there should be a "manager" or some type of program. Run it. One of the settings should read "AP mode" or "Station mode". When I switched from AP to Station, suddenly a list of available networks popped up. And my problem was solved.
Hopefully that will work for you too.

do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?
This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.
something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.
If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22
