To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
WEP key is defined by the person who set your wireless router up. You
will not be able to find out what the WEP key is, but you CAN change it
if you have physical access to the router. If you are trying to connect
to your wireless router and can't remember the WEP, then walk over to
the router and on the back or bottom of it is a small little hole that
you can fit a pen or paper clip into. Press the paper clip into the

You don't need to do a re-install of the DLink WiFi adaptor since I believe it is running as it should (as you posted). All that is needed is to configure it to exclusively select only your NetGear WiFi Router. This could be done in the DLInk Wizard (Start/All Programs/DLink.../) set the DLInk to connect only to the SSID of your NetGear. Though it may pick up your neighbors WiFi, the DLink will only acknowledge the presence of the other WiFi but connect only and always to the NetGear.
A couple of other things that may help improve your WiFi connection. Use static IP add in your PC to match that of the NetGear, disable wireless security (WEP or WPA) but rather enable MAC filter and input that of your PC's WiFi Networking Card.
Should you need a more detailed instructions, pls post back the model of your router and the make/model of your PC as well as your OS.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
