No Connection between Router and USB Dongle

I have a Netgear Wireless Router hard wired between my Virgin modem and an XP SP2 PC. Upstairs I have an old PC running ME with a Belkin G dongle. The Dongle sees a good wireless signal but the return path is shown as faulty. If I try to connect the dongle freezes everything and I have to exit it. Previously these two PCs had a wired network connection as they were in the same room. I have tried the Netgear test programme and it shows the dongle as part of the network. On that basis it seems that the problem must be with the ME PC. The ME also has NTL's software loaded onto it because it was my original BB PC. Any ideas or help please.
