This is the network I designed for my house. The two comuters upstairs connect to a switch, which connects to an 802.11g AP. Downstairs, my Dad's computer connects to the internet through a gateway/router thing and connects to the network with a USB Linksys adpater.
The two computers upstairs connect to the internet through the gateway on my Dad's computer, which is the ICS Host. Unfortunately, my Dad's computer makes a lousy host b/c the WUSB54G Linksys adapter randomly diconnects.
The two computers upstairs loose internet, and this usually happens when I'm playing an online game. I don't think it could be a bandwidth problem b/c my comuter gets internet through the wireless router, not the USB wireless adapter right?
Anyhow, if you have Linksys stuff then you know that the little green square in the tray goes grey. It says NO ASSOCIATION WITH ACCESS POINT. I decided that the AP was not at fault b/c when I restart my Dad's computer, his adapter works again. His stats are WinXP, 512mb ram (upgrade), USB 2.0 (upgrade), and the router is some kind of Westell that we got cheap when we ordered DSL. Thnks for your help.

Um, disconnecting from my Dad's computer makes everyone loose internet. I'm not sure if I'm being clear, but we have 3 peices of hardware on the network. 1) A Switch 2) A Wireless G Acess Point 3) A Westell Gateway. The Gateway is our router and our modem. My Dad's computer connects to the Gateway becuase how can you use a modem over a wireless connection. It has to connect to one of the computers, and the only one we could install it on was my Dad's for some reason. When we disconnect the modem which is the Westell Gateway no one can get internet. Do you mean to say the the Westell Gateway is an access point also?
VersaLink, Westell’s wireless DSL gateway, has been designed to
address the flexible broadband networking demands of the multi-user
environment. VersaLink combines Westell's industry-leading ADSL2+
modem technology with a high-performance wireless and flexible
router function. It provides wired networking using Ethernet and
optional USB, and the convenience of 802.11g wireless.
