It would be worth checking if the wireless adapter/card is enabled.

I found this site to be most help.

Streetwork , if it is picking up the networks one must assume it is enabled .

vista18dc , when you say it is picking up the network , have you actually double clicked on the connection and entered the network security key , either WEP or WPA that you either set up yourself or came with the wireless router and connected to the internet before opening Internet Explorer ?
