Is there a wireless adapter available for this model

Yes there is, and it's called Compaq WL100 Wireless 11-Mbps PC Card. You check the wireless driver here:
If your laptop doesn't have this and you still need wireless connectivity, better get a usb-type wireless adapter. This should give your laptop wireless functionality, same as a wireless adapter.

Hi, Although I have N series ADSL2+ Router and a N

N series routers can communicate at a speed of 150 Mbps, only if the wireless adapter that is built-in into the computer comes under N standard...
Most of the wireless adapters comes under G standard, which can communicate only at a speed of 54 Mbps...

B - 11 Mbps

WRT160N Wireless Router : i just bought a new laptop and a lynsis wrt160n......

The wired and wireless speed will always be different.
The maximum wired speed will be 100 Mbps. That means the wired connection is working properly.
Wireless connection speed will depend on the router and the wireless adapter on your computer.
If you are using B-Adapter then max speed will be 11 MBPS. IF it is G-Adapter then max speed will be 54 Mbps.
The N-adapter will give you more speed.
Check in the Device manager which adapter you are using on your wireless computer.
One more thing you can try changing the wireless channel on the router.
You will need to access the router settings page.
Update the drivers of your wireless adapter on the computer.
You have WRT160N router.
This router has issues with the Firmware.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website.
enter the model number. select proper version number and download the firmware of the router.
Once you download the firmware, you will need to open the router set up and upgrade the firmware of the router.
After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you reset and reconfigure the router.

My Netgear WG111v2 adapter seems to have given up. Tried re-installing software but the PC does not seem to recognize the existence of the hardware. Any ideas or do you think it's Donald D'd

Sounds like, may be the first time you install the software driver you might have selected the option "Donot prompt me to install the software Again"
Open Device manager and find is there is any exclamation mark next to the Wireless adapter, if so uninstall the driver and search for new hardware, it should work.
Good Luck.
