In order to setup a second computer with your router you need to first make certain that you have the following:

The second PC must have a wireless adapter. Determine if you have security setup for your network. Meaning determine if you have a wep, wpa, etc. setup. This is a security Hexidecimal encryption that allows only the administrator (you) of the network the ability to place other devices onto your network. You then need to access the web-based tool that allows you to setup and or change settings. Any more questions please feel free to ask I could walk you through it step by step.

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".

My second computer downstairs can not make a connection to the internet via my wireless router that is connected to my first computer upstairs

to difficult for explain that your problem. Wireless Router must be set into DHCP mode enabled. And your 1st laptop and 2nd computer have to been set into "Obtain an IP address automatically".
Don't forget to set your Wireless Router in section DNS server, IP range for wireless connectivity, and IP address from your adsl link.
If you confuse, you must call by phone, IT expert for do this...

Problem connecting to my network

What I would do is replace the wireless router with a 4 or 5 port switch to control computers (devices) downstairs. Or, if you need wireless access, purchase only an access point to cover downstairs.

This way the wire from upstairs goes directly into the access point and you have wireless access downstairs.

And yet another way would be to purchase Airlink 101 PowerEthernet boxes ($54.99 each) and use those to connect an access point anywhere in your home that has an outlet.

Lost internet connection to my 2nd wireless p.c

Suggestion: Move your router. Your PC 3 appears to be in a 'dead zone' so to speak.

if you want to be able to play your ps3 downstairs with your modem upstairs, you might consider buying a Wireless Router that has Wireless G , for your PS3.
This will allow you to access your Internet all around your house without wires. I suggest looking for one that features MIMO or range plus max, or anything else that increases your signal range since there is a fair amount of distance involved.

The alternative is relocating your modem downstairs and hooking it up to the PS3. BUT your computer wont have Internet.

Slow connection

Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router.
Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location.
If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)

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
