yes

do the same steps you did with your current wireless adapter. Only concern I would have is the router signal strength coming from downstairs to upstairs. If you have various appliances within the path (i.e. refridgerator, washer/dryer) the metal may deflect the signal and degrade it.

you asked if you can use another wireless usb adapter and connect to your router. The answer is yes.

Have you got the 2nd wireless and are now attempting to connect to your router with it, yet not having success?

have you entered the router information required on the machine with the new adapter?

are you seeing your router in the Wireless Networks Available list on that machine?
