Default wireless adapter is buggy..

all of a sudden my belkin network adapter wont pick up my network, it will pick up my neighbours and every one elses just not mine. im sure this started when i set up mac address filtering. ive turned all that off and its the same story on 2 of my pc's. my laptop has built in wifi so i dont need to use it on there. what could be wrong?

everythings stayed the same. the router has the latest fw (october 05 or something, what a con) and the adapter has the only working firmware (off the cd, the ones off the net dont even do anything)

A lot of times that can be the case. I had everyone and their brother on ch 6 near the hotel. I jumped over to ch 9 and made the ssid the name of the hotel. From that point other than bandwidth not being enough it's been good.
