  1. hey guys,
    After extensive troubleshooting and searching on my own I have finally given up and am hoping someone on here can help me out. I recently moved my desktop to another bedroom and do not wish to route to Ethernet cable throughout the house. I purchased a Belkin "G" USB adapter and installed the software on the PC. It connects to the router but then goes to limited activity after about a minute. Then it says there are no wireless networks. My laptop works completely fine and my phone connects to my wireless network. However, the PC does not stay connected. It detects all of the wireless networks my laptop does but then stops after about a minute. The PC works fine if connected directly with the Ethernet cable. Any ideas on why this is? If you need more information let me know. I have tried resetting the router and modem. I also have the most up to date driver for the adapter. Thank you in advance for your help.
