laptops have a wide range reciever built around the screen and tend to be far better than a normal usb dongle.
The fact that your pc is downstairs will be effected a lot because the signals from the router will be bouncing around in an area around the antenna and above, signals below will be effected by floors, doors and wall partitions.
Your best solution would be to place the router on a phone line downstairs and see if the signal is increased.

I’ll be pleased to help if I can. To answer your last question first, this router is already set up for wireless networking, so nothing further needs to be done with regard to that.
However, to prevent others using your connection, it's necessary to set up wireless security. There are four main steps, which are the same for most routers:
1) Login to your router, using a wired connection
2) Change the router login password
3) Change the network name (SSID)
3) Enable WPA encryption
Here are the details:
1) Login to your router, using a wired connection.
First, you will need an Ethernet cable to connect one of your computers to the router. This cable just plugs into a spare port on the back of your router, while the other end plugs into the Ethernet port on your computer (looks like this picture).
When you are connected, open a web browser on your computer. Type the router’s IP address into the address bar, which is http://192.168.1.1 for this model. (Note, there is no ‘www’)
You should then see a popup box, prompting you for a username and password. If these have not been changed, leave username blank and enter password: admin
If you log in successfully, you should then see the Linksys router configuration screen.
2) Change the router login password.
To set a new password, go to Administration > Management. Set and confirm a new Router Password. On this screen, I would also recommend that ‘Remote Upgrade’ and ‘Remote Administration’ are disabled. Click ‘Save Settings’ when finished.
(Tip: write the password on a label and stick it on the router, or keep it somewhere safe. )
3) Change the SSID (router name):
Go to Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings. Change the ‘Wireless Network Name (SSID)’ from the default, to anything you like, that you can remember. It is case sensitive, and you can use up to 32 letters –but do not use something that could identify you, or your location.
At this stage I’d recommend that SSID broadcast remains enabled.
4) Enable WPA encryption
Go to Wireless > Wireless Security. Enable Wireless Security. Under ‘Security Mode’ you have a number of options for encryption, but I would pick WPA-Pre-Shared Key, which is very secure and good for most equipment.
Under ‘WPA Shared Key’ you need to enter a network key. This is a long password, or passphrase, between 8 and 63 letters/numbers long. This can be any series of letters/ numbers, or you can use a phrase with numbers
( eg: 456the51stSTATeOFtheUSA1599 ). It is case sensitive. The stronger the network key the better, if you are very concerned about security.
Note down the network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. (The network key may also be called the WPA shared key, PSK, WPA-PSK, pre-shared key, security key, passphrase, or authentication key). Click ‘Save settings’ when finished.
That's it, you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.
There are further security options to enable if you wish, but these three are the most important.
When you next connect wirelessly, you should see your network with its new name in the 'available wireless networks'. When you attempt to connect, you are asked for the network key you set in Step 4. If all goes well, you can then save this and will connect automatically in future.
Hope this helps you. Please come back to Fixya if this doesn't work, or if you need help with any of it.

SOURCE: dlink dap 1522
I think I was having a similar problem with my DAP-1522 ... FW Version 1.10 being used as an access point. I recently discovered that I was not able to connect to the configuration pages using a web browser by typing in it's IP address (192.168.0.50). When I originally set this up device up on my network, it worked just fine, but at some point in time, it stopped working. My solution to this problem was to set the switch on the back of the 1522 from Auto to AP, then re-boot the DAP-1522 by removing power, waiting 10 seconds, then plugging power back in. Once the AP re-booted, I was then able to access the configuration login page by typing 192.168.0.50 into my browser. My DAP-1522 access point is connected via port 1 to my D-link router, a DGL-4100, via a DGS-2208, 8 port gigabit switch. Hope this helps!
