MN520 adaptor will not see my new Netgear WGR614 wireless router


The only protocol your older wireless adapter will connect to is 802.11b. I would say you will need to get another wireless adapter for the older computer. I would look at your router specification to see if it supports 802.11b, I am thinking it probably doesn't and that is why it cannot see the network. I will send a link to your cards specifications.

Connecting WUSB100 to Wireless G WRT54G


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.

Cannot connect my wifi laptop to the wireless router


If you use your original Win XP disks, there's a chance you now have XP SP1 (Service Pack 1). Make sure you've made all the necessary Windows Updates as working with WiFi networks was enhanced with XP SP2. Then you can try to find your wireless network and connect to it. If you had a secured network you'll need your previous network key (similar to a password, but without a username, the wireless key is needed to exchange data with the router) If you can't remember the settings on your Linksys you can reset it to factory settings with inserting something into the reset hole to press the hidden buton and holding it for several seconds until lights on the front flash. Then you HAVE to run the initial install procedure (find your CD and Quick Start sheet) because your router will be open and unsecured.
