There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

Cant connect my SMC to other home computer and have a netgear router, how do i connect my smc adapter

Most hardware like an Network Adaptor you install the software CD 1st. Then plug in the hardware.

Then if you configured wireless (wifi, 802.11) settings on your SMC - you should fine the network NAME when you try to connect. You will be asked for the security key for WEP or WPA or WPA2 that you used in the SMC.

SMC should... then assign IP Settings automatically. If the SMC has Internet, you should have Internet.

Linksys Wireless-G not connecting to internet

Make sure you are plugging the SMC into the WAN port on the Linksys router and not the LAN ports.  Your internet connection (which is your SMC) should always plug into your WAN port on the Linksys.  Any computers that you may need to plug in, like Desktops that are "wired" and not "wireless", should plug into the LAN ports on the Linksys.  If you are not using the WAN port on the Linksys for your SMC modem, then that would explain why you cannot get to the internet on wireless or wired computers.
Here's why you are getting the "low connectivity" message:

Computers don't understand why the Internet is connecting or not the "low connectivity" message you keep receiving has nothing to do with your wireless signal strength.   To a computer NIC, "low connectivity" means your network adapter could not find a DHCP server and receive a valid IP address.  When this happens, your network adapter assigns an IP address to your computer in the following range..., and will display the "low connectivity" message until it is able to receive a valid private IP address from the DHCP server.  You can verify this by going to START | RUN and typing "cmd" (without the quotes), then hit ENTER.  A black box will pop up....then type "ipconfig" (without the quotes) and hit ENTER.  This will show you your IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address, and you can verify that your IP address is in the range.  A valid private IP address is typically in the range, but could also be in the range, or the range.    Also, make sure you have DHCP server enabled on the Linksys router for the LAN.  This will ensure your "wired" and "wireless" computers receive a valid IP address.  
The WAN port on your Linksys router should be configured to "Obtain an IP address automatically using DHCP".

Two router home network problem

Can you still connect to the Internet with the Linksys router? I suggest that you go ahead and reset the SMC router to clear up your previously configured settings. Then before reconnecting it to the linksys router, make sure that you can access its web interface via Don't disable DHCP as your computer won't be able to obtain an IP address from it automatically. Do not change other settings. Next, disconnect the ethernet cable and check if you can access the router interface wirelessly. Once done, connect SMC's WAN port to Linksys' numbered port. Make sure SMC's WAN light is on, as well as the light for the port you used on the Linksys router. Check if you can get online.

With this configuration, the linksys router is now acting like a modem, and the SMC as your router. As long as you're online when wired to the linksys, you should also be able to access the net on the SMC once you physically connect them.

SMC EZ Connect 2862W-G does not see Linksys network

It shows that your wireless router and wireless adapters are both working. One thing to try is changing your wireless channel. Since you are already using 11, try maybe 1 or 9. Check if your SMC adapter will pick up the wireless signal.

By the way, how far is your computer (using the SMC adapter) to your wireless router?

Software malfunction

I assume they told you to uninstall the software, remove the adapter, then re install driver an re insert adapter, as this normally cures the driver fault. If they didn't try that, if the problem persists the adapter may be faulty although i think it's a software problem. Try not to use Windows to repair connection as it never works and resets your pc's ip address differently than your routers already given it.
