    I'm having some issues setting up a wireless network. Here's what i've got so far:

    I'm using a netgear router.
    A desktop is connected directly to the router and works fine
    A laptop with a built-in wireless adapter is connected and works fine

    My problem is connecting a third computer to the router using a linksys usb adapter. I've connected to the internet with this comp twice now, but only for seconds. Most of the time it tells me that the adapter is connected to the access point but cannot connect to the internet. On rare occassion it says that i cannot connect to the access point at all.

    I've tried everything I can think of, which is not much as today is the first time I've tried to set up a network. Can anyone help me? It would be greatly appreciated as I've searched and found this question on the internet, but nobody seems to be able to answer it...
    Also, if anyone knows where to check out a good networking tutorial i'd love to check it out
