      Did you right click the wireless icon in the Tray and select 'Search for available networks'? Yes i did that and nothing at all,

      Thanks for the other link of the Wireless N Router Atheros that may be the only way to go as i dont really want to break skys terms and conditions just incase i develop a problem...Cheers Colin

      Right the router arrived today from Amazon, Read and went through the instructions and i plugged the ethernet lead from one of the powerline adapters into it and Bingo !!! it worked superbly, now got a wireless signal all over the house. I have only 1 slight issue i tried to set up the security on it (WPA-PSK) so you need to enter a code but when i do that it will not work (says limited connection) will it make any differance not having security on it as my Sagem f@st router has the security enable on that router....Cheers Colin
