Most likely you did not connect this USB wireless adapter successfully to wireless router, check out this wireless network troubleshooting tips article, maybe could give you more ideas.

Hope this helps.

How far are you from the router? What is in between? Try changing the wireless channel.

If you can connect to the router, then it should be OK as the wireless part of the connection does not determine whether you can access the internet. So check that connection. You may actually be connecting to some other network. Use the router access code (192.168.2.1 or whatever your make is) and get into the router settings.
