This could be a compatibility problem between the router and the adapter but 9 times out of 10 it is a security problem. Sometimes if you drop down to WEP security it will work and sometimes you need to enter the hex code rather than the passphrase. If that doesn't work try to connect without security, if that works experiment with different security settings. If it doesn't work try and get the latest driver for the adapter to see if that helps.
if you are aware of the wireless passphrase (password for the wireless)
then click on start then control panel-->network and sharing center
now on the left hand side in the blue panel click on manage wireless networks
remove all the networks that you see in the list. select all of them one by one and click on remove button
once the box is empty
then click on add at the top and then add a network that is in range of this computer
and now u will see your own signal again if yes then click on it and click on connect
it will ask you for a passphrase or security key and in that type in your password and click connect
u'll surely get coonnected otherwise lemme kno

The USB adapter is attempting to connect to a Router with security setting. You need to know the security key for that wireless network. The individual who constructed the wireless network would have this information.
The passphrase can be found on the router setup page, where all the settings of the router can be found including the wireless security so just need to access the router setup page and get the passphrase from there...........
i suggest resetting the router, that's not just a basic power cycle to refresh it, but it means finding the little button on the bottom or back or inside a little hole (through which you poke an unbent paper clip) that if you hold it in for several seconds (or maybe press the button while simultaneously plugging it in/turning it on), the device flushes its entire memory and resets everything to the factory defaults. This means you'll have to reconfigure everything from the get-go, but that's about the only way to go about setting a "new" passphrase when the old one is unknown. and what i can understand is that the problem is in the usb wifi adapter and NOT the wifi router/access point..hope it helps..please clarify in case of any doubt..
Did you put in your WPA passphrase on the software for the adapter?
Click on the linksys icon in the lower right corner, go to site survey select your network then click connect. Put in your security key. That should do it.
