We have roadrunner with wireless in our home. I moved our Dell Optiplex desktop to another room in the was connected to the wireless box. We use several of the netgear WG111 adapters on homeschool computers in the house so I used the software disk to install the adapter to the Dell. The software/driver will download but when you connect the new hardware to the USB and try to set it up, the computer cannot find the software. Is it a windows XP compatability issue?

It could be, maybe you can try on other versions of xp, maybe try another xp service pack, and of course it should be genuine. non-genuine os' specially xp, have edited or modified databases often leading to some hardware issues. try browsing also, microsof knowledge base and see if there are any hotfixes for your problem.

I recently ordered an older version of Dell OptiPlex GX620 with networl card. Now, I already have wifi in my home. Will I be able to get on the internet with just that?

You should be able to connect if the network card is enabled and working properly. Just do a search for Available Wireless Networks, Select your SSID and enter your security code. That said, you can use the Wired Ethernet as well, providing your wireless access point has ethernet ports on the device. Wired , of course, is faster.

Can i take the wifi from my dell optiplex 160l and put it in my acer computer?

The answer to your question will depend on what expansion slots your new Acer desktop computer has and whether one of these will match the specific 'half mini PCI-e' card which is used in the Dell Optiplex 160L per which states it is an Optional Dell Wireless 1397 802.11BG Half Mini-PCIe card.
You will also need to obtain the device drivers for this wireless card in order to use it in the Acer.
Given that the Dell wireless card is only an 11/54MB standard card (802.11BG) I would recommend buying a newer 802.11N wireless card which will be sold with the necessary device driver and software applications needed, will give higher speed connectivity access and be much simpler to install and manage.

Moving desktop across room where there is no cable connection.

you can buy a cheap USB wifi adapter and connect the desktop wirelessly just like your laptop, this should do the trick.
or you can buy an access point to extend the range of the wireless network, you should not be moving the router itself this way.
