You'll need a way for your computer upstairs to connect to the hub/router. You can most likley get away buying a low priced wireless USB adapter like this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833340004
If your router has wireless security (such as WEP Encryption) you'll have to know the (WEP) key and SSID of the device in order to connect.

So I really need help. I have a Linksys (WRT54GS) wireless router upstairs connected to the internet, printers, etc. and a Netgear (WGT624) downstairs connected to a desktop, xbox and laptop. I don't want...


More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
(cable-modem? DSL-modem?)

How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?

Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?

If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

If you are "upstairs", is the wireless signal from the "downstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "upstairs"?

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".

2Wire 1800HG network disconnecting.


it may be tha one is acting as a server, When he turns his on or off you are losing the connection, try hooking them up in a different configuration, or leave his on when you are online instead of turning it off and on

Cannot get internet connection on pc with wireless adapter


The LAN will really tell you that its disconnected since your computer downstairs is not connected with a cable to the router, the only problem here is the wireless PCI adapter is not installed properly, try to run again the setup CD for the adapter and make sure you restart the computer when the installation is complete...

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

D-Link DIR-628 router, i've lost internet connection to the PC!


You would be best to buy a wireless router with a built in modem, this would be much easier for you to setup and manage

My belkin light is on but the internet connection to my laptop keeps breaking up consistently


This sounds like it is probably the networking cables as your PC is directly connected so shouldnt have problems with net access. Get new cables as a first step :0)

Connection keeps going on and off


check the ip addresses with the pc downstairs and see if all the pc's have the same default gateway. If not check your network card or network cable.
