I also tried to connect to the SSID as if it were hidden, but that didn’t work either.

As the distance increases ever so slightlysignal strength and ping worsen exponentially. I’m using it with a wireless g router but I researched it before I bought it and arlink said it would work with wireless g, and I figured if we ever end up getting a wireless n router, I’ll be prepared.

Go to the Adapter settings and work your way to the Tab that says Update driver Step 2: I think the only thing you could do is to move the computer closer to the router, with as little obstacle in the way as possible.
