    I have linksys Wireless G USB adaptar. It is connected to a wireless network. If i get another wireless USB adapter and connect it to the same or different network, will it make my internet connection run faster?

    No, your internet connection bandwidth is controlled (except for problems) by your ISP; they will neither increase it nor decrease it because of your number of connections.

    Adding another device to your wireless network may give you slower speed on any one computer because of the additional contention for the wireless resource.

    If you install another USB wireless adapter to the same PC and connect to a different wireless network, Windows will use one of those connections for your internet. You may experience a slowdown because of the USB contention.

    I suspect you're talking about a local connection between a router and your computer. The answer is still now, but it's a slightly different question. :D
