Question about Linksys WUSB100 Wireless Adapter
Desktop HP with Windows XP (sp3 and all updates), usb 2.0 connection
My internet speed when using wired ethernet is consistently about 2.8Mbps (using 2wire.com speedtest). With the Linksys WUSB100 wireless adapter, it is consistently 1.8Mbps.
I also have builtin wireless connection in my notebook PC (running Windows Vista 64b) sitting next to the desktop PC - it consistently runs at 2.8Mbps.
I have de-installed/re-installed drivers. I have tried installing software first, and I have tried installing the adapter first, letting it look for drivers.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

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.

1. uninstall the WLAN monitor from add/remove programs.
2. restart computer. it should say "found new hardware" (for the WMP54GS)
3. insert the installation CD for the WMP54G, but make sure that you do not install the WLAN monitor. just install the drivers for the card.
Then let windows control the wireless.

Sounds like you need to reboot the router and probably the cable modem. Unplug both, wait 30 seconds, then plug them back in. It can't hurt anything and it solves this problem 90% of the time.
