ExpressCard Slot
One 26pin Express card slot is available to support one ExpressCard/34mm or one ExpressCard/54mm expansion card. This new interface is faster by using a serial bus supporting USB 2.0 and PCI Express instead of the slower parallel bus used in the PC card slot. (Not compatible with previous PCMCIA cards.)

You must purchase a wireless network adapter expresscard style:

This is an older network card, and has been discontinued by DLink.

The network speed on this card is only 10MB

Compared to new network cards which are 1G this card is 100 times slower, or 10 times slower than older 100MB network cards.

I returned a laptop computer and forgot to take out my usb receiver. Is there anyway I can purchase another one?

First thing I'd do is call the store that you returned the laptop to and tell them it was still in there. Most stores are pretty good for catching these things.

As far as purchasing a new adapter you have dozens of options. Try to match the speed ie a G or N type card. Thats about the only thing to look at. You can also consider a extension cable that lets you put the adapter away from the laptop a bit. Thats handy but not needed. And you also have the option of getting a PCMCIA type network adapter. These fit into the credit card type slots on the side of the laptop not the USB. These are a bit faster and take less to operate so they don;t use up as much cpu or memory to work (better choice if it is older slower laptop) the only problem is they cost a bit more.
Stick with a name brand and try to find a good warranty. Some of the off brand cards are 30 days and that seems to be how long they last. A good one will last years.

I have a DIR-615 router that I have no problem connecting my laptops with internal wireless. However, trying to connect my desktop with a DWL-G620 Wireless Adapter. It detect the network but will not...

The WPA key is the encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings and the wireless cards in the laptop and desktop needs to be configured with this encryption setting to allow the laptop and desktop computer to communicate with the router.
You can view the encryption settings in the router's wireless settings or on the laptop's wireless card settings and then apply these encryption settings to the desktop's wireless card (ie. the SSID and the WPA encryption).

My wireless adapter does not detect any reception from the router. i have another laptop at home that could easily detect reception from the router. what should i do?

since the laptop is connecting to the router and is having the internet access as well then clearly the problem is with the adapter or with the pc using the adapter.

Following steps can be considered :-
1)If the PC is using OS as windows XP then , click on start menu and then go to control panel and then open network connections from there.
2)Under network connections an option for wireless connection exist , right click on that option and then click on properties.
3)Under wireless network connection properties there are three tabs general , wireless network and advanced.
4)Left click on wireless network tab and check the box which says use windows to configure my wireless setting's and click OK at the bottom.
5)Then , Right click again on wireless network connection and then left click on view available wireless network.
6)List of available networks will be there , select the network you use and try connecting to it , if it gets connected then the internet access will be there.

Broadband speed slower with intel pro 2200bg wireless

Is it getting any better if you move closer to the router?
First try to update the driver and see if it works better, if not than there's not really much you can do with it. You can swich to cat5e cable, that will be more than enough, or if you really need wireles speed than consider changeing the wirelesscacd in your laptop.
I suggest you some atheros chip based card, because their signal strength and sensitivity is very good. First figure out what you have, open up the small backpanel of your laptop, if there's two than it could be the bigger one. The card could be Mini PCI or mini PCI-E wichever is similar to your card is the type that you need.
After that go to ebay and search for "atheros mini pci" or "mini pci-e atheros", see description for compatibility, or ask the seller if you are not certain. Delivery usually takes about up to 5 bisness days.
Depanding of the card's exact chip you can download driver from here.
Just check before ordering if there's a driver or not for your OS, because as you can see they don't have drivers for some older chips if you have a relatively new windows like Vista or if the chipset is new in some cases there's no driver for XP
But for most cards there's a working dirver and it really makes a diference after most cards.

To swich the card:
-Download the driver for the new card.
-Uninstall the current wireless driver in windows and shut down the computer.
-Swich the wireless card for the new one.
-Start the system and install the driver.
-Enjoy your new card.

Can't see any wireless networks in the area, but I know there are many

Can your other laptop see the laptop with the problem. First check that it is being given an IP address in your router and set to obtain IP address automatically. You may need to give the wireless card an ip address and DNS address yourself within the same range as the others; this way you know the addresses are correct. Just check that your problem laptop has the same network group name, right click my computer>properties>computer name and check the workgroup name is tha same as rest of your pc's. Keep trying you'll win in the end!
