Netgear wireless adapters

Win7 64-bit Orange brightbox router Netgear WPN111 and WG111T wireless adapters. Have downloaded the win7 drivers for both adaters from netgear site and some that were posted by a guy called Ryan. Both (one at a time)adapters show in device manager as working OK. Both show up in Network and Sharing centre as there and enabled under "change adapter settings. However do not get wireless symbol on system tray and when I try to set up a wireless connection my brightbox doesn't show. Is there a setting in the router I am missing, or are netgear adapters just a load of rubbish? Currently using a hard wired connection to PC from router, but would like to move to another room. Have tried the netgear software with wizard and just updating the drivers with the driver files only. Latest development is the netgear driver installation wizard will not comlete saying a .Dll is missing.

Have I missed something obvious although reading previous posts it seems many people are having similar problems.
