If you're on a laptop, move to another location and see if you get a better signal.  Also, it depends on the type of card you are using - obviously a cheesy no-name brand (sometimes even cheap ones like D-Link) won't offer great signaling while Cisco Aironet or Netgear/Linksys offer better range support.  Also, are you using B or G?  B has better range while G has less of a range but has better transmission rates.  You'll need to explain more.

did you try going closer to the basement and seeing if that helps?

is your wireless connection asking for a network key.  If you are sending, but not receiving any bytes, then there is some type of authentication that you need to set up between the access point and you laptop.  Most of the time, the network key is located on the bottom of the router/access point.
