To work, the adapter’s wireless standard must be equal to or older than  the router’s wireless standard. For example, if the network adapter in  your PC uses the 802.11n wireless standard (also called Wireless-N) but  your router uses  802.11g, (also called Wireless-G), you won't be able  to connect because the Wireless-G standard is an earlier version and  doesn’t recognize Wireless-N. However, if the router uses Wireless-N but  the adapter in your PC uses Wireless-G, you should be able to connect  if the router is set to mixed mode, since Wireless-N works with some or  all of the earlier standards (802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g). Please check the same.
