double check your network configuration settings on the router and on your pc. something in there might not be set correctly.

I checked it, and it looks ok, but of course there's anything wrong.
I don't see the wireless network in Network an Sharing Center, but that
might be due to the fact, that the wireless usb stick is not connected to the router ???
