My belkin light is on but the internet connection to my laptop keeps breaking up consistently
I have a main pc downstairs with a wireless rooter attatched to it, and then I have my laptop upstairs with a belkin wireless USB network adapter connected to it. The internet connection keeps on breaking up, and I keep having to go downstairs to make sure all the green lights on the wireless rooter are on, and then sometimes the internet comes back on, but this is only for about five minutes or so, until the connection breaks again. The light on the wireless adapter is on all the time, but my internet hardly ever works on my laptop, and on the downstairs pc it works a little bit better but is still not reliable.

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. Click Here for step by step solution
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".
Make sure the wireless adapter is enabled on the elonex laptop and its properly installed.
Connect wirelessly on the elonex one laptop using the same SSID and security key that you used on your main laptop.
Try changing the channel of the router to 1,9 or 11, and make sure that there is no cordless phone near the router or the wireless computer, this will help mionimize wireless interference. If this may not work you may want to adjust some settings on the advance wireless settings of the router like the beacon(set it to 50) and RTS/fragmentation(2304).
