My telephone connector is downstairs, and I want to have my PC upstairs - but I do not want to run wires around the house. Is there any way I can connect my computer wirelessly. i.e router downstairs,...

Yes, a wireless router should work fine.
You'll need a wireless-adapter (either internal PCI add-in card, or external USB stick) in your computer, if it does not have built-in wireless capability.

I have F5D7230-4 router. Modem downstairs connected to DSL. Computer upstairs needs a wireless card to work This is a ''G'' router, but it only picks up signal upstairs with a ''B'' card which I stole...

The Belkin F5D7230-4 router should offer "Wireless G" connections,
unless you have used its built-in web-interface to only allow "Wireless B" connections.

So, if your "upstairs" computer, with a "Wireless B" adapter, connects, it will connect only at the slower "Wireless B" speed.

If you want "Wireless G" speed, you will need to purchase a "Wireless G" adapter.

Cant connect to internet with main computer, one upstairs is fine

The upstairs computer is wired or wireless ?

If the upstairs computer is working then the router must be working properly.
Check the connection between the downstairs computer and the router.
If it is a wireless computer then check the wireless connection status on that computer.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router

No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

I lost my dlink d1514 installation cd, have dsl set up

You can download the driver for your adapter from D-Link's support page here.
There are 5 different versions, so make sure you get the correct one.

You can then either burn that file on a CD or copy it on a USB stick - it is too big for a floppy though - and install it on your downstairs computer.

Of course you can carry the computer upstairs and connect it to the router via an Ethernet cable, but that would be my last resort.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Cannot get internet connection on pc with wireless adapter

The LAN will really tell you that its disconnected since your computer downstairs is not connected with a cable to the router, the only problem here is the wireless PCI adapter is not installed properly, try to run again the setup CD for the adapter and make sure you restart the computer when the installation is complete...

Cable modem

Go and buy a router. Plug your existing modem into the WAN port and your computers into the LAN port. You could even get a wireless router and connect your upstairs computer wireless. Be sure to lock down your SSID (Wireless Access Point Broadcast Name) so your neighbors or people driving by don't get on and do bad things on your network.

You'll need a way for your computer upstairs to connect to the hub/router. You can most likley get away buying a low priced wireless USB adapter like this one.
If your router has wireless security (such as WEP Encryption) you'll have to know the (WEP) key and SSID of the device in order to connect.

Linksys WAP54G connection to WRT54G

Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well. Plans to do so abound at
