Problems with Home Networking and Routers

I have a wireless router set up with my pc connected to it using a PCI Adapter.

I want the my PC to connect to the internet.

I have connected to the network but it says "Limited" or "No connectivity".

PLEASE, could anyone help?

Is there a long distance between the two things?

Why don't you use the forum instead of sending emails then more people can help you.I don't mind but using the forum will get you a wider and hopefully quicker response.

What type of router and card is it?

Its a Netgear router and a ralink wireless lan card. I set up my PCI using the disk i got with it.

Have you made sure the key is the same for the router and PCI card.My router and card require you to put the key in a differently.The router you have input the key with a space between the numbers and the numbers are repeated for a 128 key like 1234567891234 you input it like 11 22 33 44 55 66 77 88 99 11 22 33 44 but on the router you don't.

Can you not connect your PC to your router with ethernet cable?

no its to far. The best thing to do is probably get someone to look at it.
