my problem is dealing witha second computer located in a different room. i want to connect to the internet without wires. so i found our old wireless adapter. installed it all and it found the wireless connection from my main pc. it will connect and all...bout 80% signal strength. but when i click on the internet it gives me nothing. says im not connected...bit the linksys software says different. so then il go into control panel and click network connections, it says im still not connected. but my linksys says i am at 80%. idk whats goin on. is my wireless network adapter broken? how to i get my pc to recognize it? how do i get on the internet?

This sounds like some kind of ad-hoc setup and I'm not sure you can make it work. I suspect that in order for it to work, you'd have to enable ICS on the computer's wireless adapter and I'm not sure you can do that. Besides, there is an easier way.

Go buy a wireless SOHO router and use that. If you already own a router that isn't wireless capable, buy a wireless Access Point.
