Question about 2wire (1000-000005-002) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
Well, actually... it might help to turn the router off and then on again. Sometimes power-cycling the router can reset it, which might need to be done. I'm a big fan of the power-cycle; it works for all sorts of obscure problems.
Once the router is on again, use the laptop and adapter to check for wireless networks. If you still can't find a network, disconnect the ethernet cable from the back of the desktop computer, and try the wireless adapter with the desktop PC. If it works, the problem is with the laptop (possibly a power supply problem). If it doesn't work, the problem is either the adapter or the router.
Ideally you should then try your adapter with a friend's router. Eventually you will discover whether the router is playing up or whether the adapter is faulty.
In my (admittedly still limited) experience, connection problems are rarely about faulty equipment and more usually about incorrect settings, so it might also be worth running the New Connection Wizard from Network Connections in the Control Panel.
