Hello all,

Ok to your question. What Operating system are you using? ? Do you know what "wireless" hardware you have on the Desktop? A bit more on the Netgear would help out as well.

How old is the wireless adapters? Is there encryption on the wireless? Will the adapters be able to use a modern encryption like WPA2? What is your signal strength?
