      Please help with my wireless connection.

      Hi, i recently bought sky broadband and I got the free modem/router thing. I've set it up correctly for my laptop downstairs where it is next to the phone line and it is working fine( even though it is slow as ****)

      But i'm having trouble getting wireless upstairs in my childrens bedrooms where they both have pc's. The router/connection isn't showing up in the network connections window in the control panel. At first I thought they weren't wireless enabled but I checked and they both have network cards so It should be working right?
      Please help.

      Well, there are network cards and there are wireless network adapters.

      Have a look in Device Manager or click the Network icon in Control Panel and see how the adapters are described or look round the back -- a PCI wireless adapter will have an aerial sticking out.
