Newbie Please help-Netgear Wireless Adaptor

Hopefully someone can help...I have an old school usb wireless adapter it is a netgear ma111. The latest drive I have is version 3.1.3.0 I can get it to connect to the internet but only every once in awhile but most of the time I get "windows unable to connect to linksys" which is the name of the network. My router is a linksys WRT546. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Adjust the position of the USB device and/or the router.

There may be a power issue also. Insert the USB device ona different USB port -if currently in front, place on back.
