From the curb to my house is a wired connection. There is a wireless router in the basement, but it can't be run hardwired with a LAN cable.

It could just be the distance is too far for the wireless adaptor too see. Hence no networks are showing up ? Do other wireless networks ( not yours ) show up for any of your other pcs ?
