TP Link Support

Install the Router on one PC, Adapter on the 2nd PC
Sparing further dialogue, here's a quick guide of the steps I took to fix my problem and get my connection working. My upstairs computer, which is receiving a signal through its adapter:
1.       Installing the Router Driver on your 1st PC: Don't install the TP Link software. Instead, save its drivers to a new folder on your desktop via the TP Link support  (you can use the drivers included on the CD that came with the router, although the version on TP Link's website may be newer).

If your router is not already installed, connect it by following the included instruction booklet. When you reboot your computer and it asks you if you'd like to install the driver, you'll have to follow the options for "Install drivers manually" and/or "Have disk" and point it to the driver folder you've downloaded to PC.

Your PC will then install the drivers for your router, and that portion of this guide is complete.
2.       Installing the Adapter Driver on your other PC: Now, install your adapter in your second computer, which is going to receive the signal from the router. Install the card as described in the instruction manual, but do not install the TP Link software. Instead, once again, copy the drivers to your desktop.

Make sure you are using the right driver version for that particular card (for instance, be sure not to use a 4.1 driver for a 4.0 adapter card).
Reboot your computer after installing the card. When Windows finds the hardware, go through the driver installation process exactly as in step 1: choose "Install drivers manually" and/or "Have disk", point it to the driver folder on your desktop, and it will install your software.

Configuring the Router's Settings
Your router and adapter should now be installed in their respective computers, with the most recent drivers. Now, it's time to configure your router.
Go to the PC that has the router connected to it, and open up your internet browser. Visit http://192.168.1.1/ - this will open up your router configuration panel.
Follow the directions below, ONLY looking at the sections I mention, and leaving everything else at its default!
1.       "Setup" Tab/"Basic Setup" Sub-Tab: Set to "Automatic Configuration - DHCP." Click the radio button next to "Enable DHCP server", and make sure the "Maximum number of DHCP users" is set to a number that represents the number of computers that will be getting internet access in your home (for me, this number was set to 2).
2.       "Wireless" Tab/"Basic Wireless Settings" Sub-Tab: Wireless network mode should be set to "Mixed." "Wireless Network Name" should be something you can remember - maybe your first name and last initial...this is a very important part that you'll have to reference later! Lastly, set "Wireless SSID Broadcast" to Enable.The adapter version should be on a label right on the card itself
3.       "Wireless" Tab/"Wireless Security" Sub-Tab: This part is entirely up to you. Personally, I'm using "WEP" mode, because I have an iPod Touch which connects to a wi-fi internet connection, and it only recognizes WEP at 128 Bits. There's nothing wrong with using this, so try it out as you follow this tutorial - you can always go back and change it to something else, like "WPA Personal."
As for a passphrase, create a password -- this is the 2nd most important thing you'll have to reference later on. Click "Generate." The password will generate 4 "Keys", you'll only need to look at "Key 1" later.
4.       "Wireless" Tab/"Wireless MAC Filter" Sub-Tab: Set "Wireless Mac Filter" to "Enable." Under "Permit Only," choose "Permit only PCs listed to access the wireless network" (this disallows your next door neighbor from stealing your wireless cable connection!). Now, go to your 2nd PC, with the adapter card in it. Click "Start" and "Run" in MS Windows. Type CMD and hit Enter, which will bring up a DOS prompt. Type ipconfig /all, and look for a MAC address (it will be called a "Physical address" on the list, and will look something like "01-A2-B3-E4-23-B5". Write this down.
Go back to the PC with the router connected to it, which has the router configuration screen open. Make sure you're still on the screen under the "Wireless" Tab/"Wireless MAC Filter" tab, and click "Edit Mac Filter List". Type in the MAC address/Physical address that you've written down from the other PC, just a few seconds ago, anywhere on the pop up list (MAC 01 is fine). Make sure you use the correct format with the colons, don't use dashes. In other words, it should look something like 01:A2:B3:E4:23:B5 ...click "Save settings."
5.       "Access Restrictions" Tab/"Internet Access" Sub-Tab: Next to "Status", click "Enable." Enter a policy name here - it's simply a user profile (for instance, MySecondPC would be fine). Click "Allow" next to "PCs." Make sure "Everyday" and "24 hours" are also checked. Click "Save settings," then make sure "MySecondPC" or whatever you chose for a Policy Name is listed in the dropdown selection at the top of this screen, next to "Internet Access Policy." Now, your 2nd PC has been given access to your router, while everybody else in range is restricted, since they are not on the access list
