Got a LinkSys wireless A+G Router, but it doesn't "see" my other computer in the family room less than 10 ft away. Have a 2Wire wireless USB adapter connected to Dell Dimension E310 system in family room. How can I resolve this problem?

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).
Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.
If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.
hi! sorry if it took a while to get an answer to your question...
anyway, let's begin by ensuring that you have completed installing the drivers & software of your wireless adapter.
launch the linksys wireless program by clicking on the icon for the linksys on the system tray or generally, this can also be launched from the programs menu after clicking on the windows start button.
on the main screen for the linksys, there are 3 tabs: link information, site survey & profiles. select the profiles tab
on the profiles screen, click on the new button to create a new profile. name the profile with a customized ID & click ok.
under choose a net type, select infrastructure mode. enter the SSID (this is your customized ID created on the new profile) & click next.
under network setting select obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP) & click on next.
under security settings choose "disabled" for WEP and leave the rest of the fields blank.
confirm the settings by clicking on yes.
note: you don't need a driver for your 2wire router, ensuring that the 2wire is already working with the ethernet connection. also make sure you are able to see your devices on the mdc page, go to homeportal/management, local network> device list.
