I have a router down stairs connected to my pc downstairs. when i installed the software on my pc upstairs for my new belkin adapter and installed the relevant driver and restarted my computer as instructed it still could not apick up a signal to any wireless networks?? but my wireless laptop upstairs does.

Could anybody help me.

in the second review down it says the settings wouldn't stick and they had to use the instructions from microsoft.com as it seems the belkin software will turn off the built in windows wireless.
